contempt ?

What would happen to bm if found guilty on three counts of contempt. Two for not allowing court ordered visitation and also not allowing court ordered vacation time. Just so you know she has no excuse just is choosing to go against court order. I do not knowanything about being held in contempt that is why I am asking.

  • fines most likely. A friend of mine's ex is up for contempt. They're talking fines because he has kids to support,can't go to jail.

  • Honestly? Probably not much. She's not going to be thrown in jail or anything. If you bring her to court over it she'll most ikely get her hand slapped, be told to follow the agreement and that will be it. You'd probably have to take her back to court for contempt a few times and show a pattern of ignoring the court orders before they get serious with her.
