Contempt is one of the most extreme remedies available to the Florida courts. If a party is held in contempt of a court order (such as, for example, to pay child support or provide visitation), the court has the power to punish the violator with a fine, jail time, or both.
Clearly, these are severe remedies, reserved for the most flagrant of violators. In order to request that a party be held in contempt, the attorney requesting it must meet a great deal of technical requirements. These are the most detailed motions that a family law attorney can bring, since the accused party can lose his or her freedom. It is essential, therefore, that any lawyer bringing a contempt motion be well trained and experienced in these matters, since even a small technical defect can cause the motion to fail. At Farrar Law Firm, we take these motions very seriously.
