Brockton Family Court Attorney • Contempt of Court
In contested and uncontested divorces alike, there is always some kind of official agreement or judgment, signed by the court and binding on both parties, that lays out the rules regarding every relevant aspect of life after the divorce, including:
• Child custody
• Child support
• Property division
• Spousal support/alimony
• College tuition
If your spouse if not following the divorce decree, attorney Norton can petition the court for him or her to be held in contempt of court. The court can impose fines and other sanctions until the other party complies with the divorce orders.
