Richard Stepp helps protect your court-ordered rights
Once a marriage ends and a court issues a final order, both spouses have obligations and rights. If your former spouse violates the conditions of the court order — or if you have failed to follow the order — how can you protect yourself? We at Stepp Law have vast experience in filing and defending motions for contempt of court, and we apply this knowledge gained over nearly 20 years of legal practice to help you protect your court-ordered rights.
Motions for contempt
When the recipient of a court order fails to fulfill his or her obligations, the affected person may file a motion for contempt of court. These motions are most typically filed in the following types of cases:
If a party to a court order is found to be in contempt, he or she may be ordered to pay any money owed, fined attorneys’ fees, or even imprisoned, depending on the seriousness of the violation of the court order. In order to defend your and your child’s rights under a court order, it is important to obtain the advice of an experienced attorney.
Modification of prior court orders

Seasoned attorney Richard Stepp brings nearly 20 years of courtroom experience as a divorce attorney to the negotiating table to modify court orders to best suit your needs.
