Obtaining a court order is an essential step in all family law matters; however, the ability to enforce the order is the most meaningful part of the process to most people. The courts in Minnesota have the power to enter “contempt” orders against persons who disobey court orders. Contempt orders may include sentencing a person to jail, assessing fines against him or her, ordering the party to pay attorney’s fees and expenses, and other remedies. If the other party has failed to abide by the terms of a custody or support order, you can seek to use these powers of the court to enforce compliance.
