Contempt of Court in Georgia
Retain Representation from an Alpharetta Family Attorney
Contempt of court in
family law refers to violations in custody and visitation plans ordered by the court.
These orders are primarily based on what is in the best interest of the
child and if you or your ex-spouse violates either of them, you can be
found in contempt of court.

divorce lawyers at The Law Offices of David E. Oles has 20 years of experience
in handling even the most complex cases. Our representation is specifically
tailor to meet every need because no two cases are exactly alike. We handle

Consequences of Contempt
If one parent violates a court order such as custody or visitation, the
other parent can file a motion that will ask the court to hold the violating
parent in contempt of court. The process for ordering the motion includes
serving the motion and setting the hearing date. These motions cannot
change a custody agreement, but a contempt hearing can order changes to
the visitation agreement.
Examples of custody and visitation violations include:
- Blocking visitation – This occurs when a parent makes a child unavailable
for court-ordered visitation and deliberately rearranging the child’s
schedule so that other activities interfere with the court ordered visitation times.
- Blocking communication – This includes blocking phone calls or emails
between the child and the non-custodial parent.
Denying visitation – In some cases, a parent who is not receiving
child support feels entitled to withhold the other parent’s right to visit the child.
