Privacy Policy

When family law arrangements are created, it is with the expectation that they will be followed by each of the involved parties. This includes paying the full spousal or child support in a timely manner, as well as picking up and dropping off the children on time. However, if your ex or the other parent to your children is not following those arrangements, you have the right to hold him or her accountable.

At the law office of Amy M. Levine & Associates, we represent clients throughout Ohio and West Virginia who are in contempt of court. Although enforcement and contempt are similar, they are not identical.

  • Contempt: The family law courts use contempt to enforce actions that may be easily taken by one party. The court has a great array of contempt powers that may be used to gain compliance, including incarceration, paying the other party’s attorney fees and fines.
  • Enforcement: Enforcement of orders is an additional legal means through which the court may gain compliance of the party who is not abiding the court orders. Where enforcement is used to motivate action, contempt is used as a punishment for failing to comply with the agreed-upon arrangements.
