Contempt and enforcement are remedies that the court will provide when one party has failed to follow through with a final court order. Florida law defines contempt as “any act which is calculated to embarrass, hinder, or obstruct the court in the administration of justice, or which is calculated to lessen its authority or dignity.” Generally, contempt can either be civil or criminal. With regards to family law, this kind of contempt would be civil contempt. Civil contempt would give a party the ability to require the other party to fulfill a previous court order.

The potential reasons for contempt in family law are, normally speaking, when one party is refusing to comply with a parenting plan, failure to satisfy child support and/or alimony payments, or violating a restraining order.
