Lawrenceville Divorce & Family Law Attorney
Contempt Proceedings in Georgia
Are you having trouble collecting spousal support or child support payments from your ex-husband or wife? Is your ex refusing to comply with the terms of your divorce agreement? When an ex-spouse is willfully and intentionally ignoring or failing to comply with the terms of his or her
divorce, legal action may be taken in the form of contempt proceedings in order to revert the situation.
Refusing to follow the terms of a divorce is actually a blatant violation of a Court Order and is illegal. This most often takes on the form of failing to pay support or of violating child custody or visitation orders.
