Representing Clients In Cases Involving Contempt

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 law firm that represents people in contempt matters as well as a wide range of other family law 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.

Enforcement Issues

Our firm can take action in court to secure compliance with an existing family law order involving custody, visitation, spousal support or property division. Depending on your situation, it may be possible to recover court costs and attorney fees.

Defending A Contempt Of Court Action

If you are the subject of an enforcement or emergency petition, you must respond. Failure to do so can have dire consequences, including possible jail time.

The loss of a job or prolonged unemployment can make it difficult to comply with a child support, spousal support or property division order. We will identify possible defenses such as involuntary or extraordinary circumstances that led to your current predicament, and we will present your case in court. We can also defend you if you have been accused of failing to comply with a custody or visitation order. You can rest assured that the lawyers at Harrison & Medlin, P.C. will do everything they can to resolve your problem in a positive manner.
