A finding of Contempt by a Court can result in payment of attorney fees and costs of the other party, arrest, and/or strict compliance with the Court Order. Therefore, it is important to hire the right attorney to help you with ensuring compliance with a Court Order or to help defend you against a Complaint for Contempt.
