Contempt of court - jail as a sanction (part 3)

In part two, I discussed that in a contempt of court action imprisonment can be requested as a sanction based upon a party's failure to follow a court's order.

Representation by a court-appointed attorney is contingent upon financially qualifying for that assistance.

Contempt of court - jail as a sanction (part 2)

In my previous contempt of court blog post I discussed that a judgment is one of the remedies that can be ordered if an individual fails to pay a court ordered support obligation. Other contempt sanctions can also be requested or imposed.

Child support - what happens if you fail to pay in Washington?

When someone fails to make court ordered child support payments, does not pay spousal maintenance or alimony, or fails to follow a parenting plan that person can be found in contempt. Contempt is intentional disobedience of any lawful judgment, decree, order, or process of the court. A party can be held in contempt of court if he or she refuses to follow the requirements of a temporary or a final order.
