Court Order and Contempt

Boca Raton Divorce & Family Lawyers

A Florida divorce decree is a binding legal document that must be followed by both parties. Although changes can be made, they must be done formally through a modification (where one party asks the court to modify an existing order or judgment). If one of the parties violates an order in the decree, the court can hold that party in contempt. This is a serious offense that can result in community service, fines and even incarceration (time in jail). Being found in contempt can also cause a party to lose child custody or visitation / time sharing rights.

At the Law Offices of Brian M. Moskowitz, our Boca Raton divorce attorney has assisted clients who needed help to enforce a court order as well as clients who were being held in contempt. With over a decade of experience, we have a passion for family law and we will make sure that your rights are protected.
