Charlotte Contempt of Court Attorneys

Skilled Legal Services for Family Law Matters

Family court orders can involve any issue related to family law. When these orders have been violated or ignored by one of the parties, the other party has a legal right to file for a contempt of court against the offender. Being found to be in contempt of court can result in various penalties. These penalties are levied against the offender in order to force compliance and to act as a punishment and deterrent for further misconduct. Thus, contempt of court is a serious matter which requires the services of a skilled family law attorney.
