Post-Decree Enforcement (Contempt) Lawyers Stockbridge & Atlanta

Diligent Stockbridge, Henry County lawyers taking action to protect your interests

The experienced family lawyers at Meadows, Macie & Sutton, P.C. assist clients in matters of contempt and post-decree enforcement. Your final divorce decree is the court’s formal order granting the termination of your marriage. Issues including custody and child and spousal support are settled in your divorce decree. Serious consequences can ensue when one party fails to follow any of the terms of the divorce.

What is contempt?

When a party willfully fails to comply with a court order, that party is said to be in contempt. This could be alimony, child support or custody court order. The law authorizes the filing of a contempt action to enforce the order. The party found in contempt can be ordered to do the following:

  • Comply with the order
  • Face incarceration
  • Pay the other side’s attorneys’ fees

At Meadows, Macie & Sutton, P.C., we understand that every situation is different; we represent clients seeking enforcement of prior orders as well as clients defending such actions.
