When a party does not follow a court order or a parenting plan, the court has the power to enforce the orders through proceedings of contempt. The court has broad powers to enforce court orders regarding child custody. In a contempt proceeding for not following court orders regarding child custody, the court will look to the best interests of the child in ordering relief. The court can issue an order that may include the following relief:
Additional terms and conditions on the prior custody order;
Modifying the previous custody order in the best interests of the child;
Adding a requirement for either parent or both parents to attend a parental education program at the expense of the other party;
Requiring the parties to participate in family counseling at the expense of the non-compliant parent;
Requiring make-up parenting time for the aggrieved parent of the same type and duration as that which was denied within six months;
Finding the non-compliant parent in contempt of court and imposing a fine or jail sentence;
Imposition of a civil fine not to exceed one hundred dollars per incident of denied parenting time;
Setting a hearing for modification of custody; and/or
Any other order that may serve the best interests of the child.
I appreciated that not only did Will know law like I know my colors, but he was a counselor as well and guided me through the process. I was nervous many times but was able to fully out my trust in what he was doing and I couldn't be happier. I will continue to refer people to him as o hear of those needing assistance.
Going through a challenging divorce is hell, your team had my back and represented me with a solid council. I have my daughters and got to stay in Colorado with them. I cannot thank you enough.
