Augusta Contempt Lawyers

Protecting the Rights of Clients Throughout Eastern Georgia

Failure to comply with a family law order can have very serious consequences, including a possible jail sentence. Regarding child support, judges have other options as well, including suspension or revocation of the payee's driver's license or garnishment of wages.

Harrison & Medlin, P.C. is a family law firm that represents people in contempt matters. We go to court to enforce family law orders, and we also defend people in enforcement and contempt cases. Our extensive experience in this area enables us to quickly understand the key issues involved and take measures to protect the rights of our clients.

For help with a child support, child custody, visitation, spousal support, or property division enforcement matter, contact Harrison & Medlin, P.C.

If the other parent is not complying with a custody or visitation order, or if he or she is about to relocate to another state with your child, we can go to court to obtain an emergency order. When it is issued, this will direct the Sheriff to take measures to enforce the order.
