Modification is necessary when there are life changes which affect alimony, time sharing or child support. Needs change. Jobs are lost yet there are still legal obligations to be met. Contempt occurs when someone is not complying with an existing court order and the court can hold the non-complying party in contempt to require compliance.
We have handled dozens of alimony modification cases, time sharing modification cases and have prosecuted and defended against many contempt proceedings. This is an area which requires experience and skill.
The way that courts enforce orders is to hold the person not complying with the court order in contempt of court and threaten to incarcerate the non-compliant party. It is often a very effective tool to gain compliance with a court order.
