A contempt proceeding is for the purpose of enforcing a court order or judgment.
If a party willfully fails to follow court orders, a contempt action can be filed against them in Court. As part of a contempt judgment, the Court can not only enforce its own orders, but it can also order sanctions and/or attorney’s fees and costs against the party who violated the Court’s orders.
