Court orders must be taken seriously and followed by all parties bound. The court does not treat breaches of its own orders lightly, therefore either party is entitled to make a ‘contravention application’ against the other and prove that the other party has knowingly and deliberately breached court orders without reasonable excuse. There can be penalties for such conduct.
Contravention proceedings can relate to parenting orders or financial orders. Sometimes they are necessary if the other party repeatedly breaches orders. Our solicitors are here to guide you through this process and provide you with support in reaching the results you wish to achieve.
