Family Court Contempt Attorneys
Serving Beaufort, Hilton Head, Bluffton, Walterboro, Ridgeland and Beyond
Sometimes obtaining a South Carolina family court order is only the first step. What if the other party fails to comply with its terms? Under South Carolina law, the parties to a case are required to follow the terms provided in the family court order. Failure to do so can result in a finding of contempt of court.
It can be critical to clients and their children that the other party be forced to comply with an existing court order whether it addresses issues of custody, support or equitable division of property. Punishment for contempt can range from community service, paying fines and court costs to being put in jail until you are willing or able to comply with the terms of the court order.
The attorneys at Brown & Norton are experienced in forcefully advocating for clients to enforce existing court orders and in zealously defending against contempt of court charges.
