Child Support Contempt
Child Support Contempt - Support Modifications - Contempt Hearings
Family law courts closely enforce child support payments. A party can face serious consequences when failing to adhere to the orders. Failure to make timely payments may result in accumulated interest while long-term failure can result in wage garnishment or being held in contempt of court. A party filing for contempt must complete an affidavit, noting exactly how much child support is owed. If the nonpaying party is found guilty of contempt, he/she can go to jail and be forced to pay fines for each violation. When a party is found guilty of missing several months of payments, extensive jail time is possible.
