In contempt of court? Dealing with this family law issue

In an ideal world, couples in Georgia would divorce or split amicably, being able to agree on all their issues. But the reality is that this is not a fantasy world and disputes do arise quite frequently. In some cases, even when a person is ordered by the court to do something, such as pay another party or surrender property, he or she may still fail to follow the order. When this happens, it is called being in contempt of court. Our law firm understands how divorce issues could make it challenging to go through the process and finalize a divorce agreement.

Going through a divorce? Don't face this hard time alone

Ask Georgians about the most stressful or emotional situation they have been through, and it's likely that a majority of them will mention divorce. The end of a marriage is a very painful experience. When you get married, you basically enter into a lifelong contract with your spouse. When you no longer want to be married, you break that contract, in a sense. While getting out of a marriage is possible, it's not an easy task. It requires a lot of time, money, paperwork and negotiation. In extreme cases, it may even require a lot of litigation.
