How do I enforce time sharing or parenting matters?
The Court uses its Contempt powers to enforce timesharing and parenting matters. If your timesharing or parenting rights are not being honored, you may file a Motion for Contempt. The Court will hold a hearing if timesharing is not permitted, or if parenting rights are not allowed to be exercised. If the Court finds that there has been a violation, the Court may order additional or make up time with the children, attorney’s fees and other sanction. In many cases, if you win a Motion for Contempt, the Court may order the other party to reimburse you for your attorney’s fees and costs.
