Disregarding or disobeying a court order. It is a very, very serious thing to be held in contempt of court.

Question: What punishment does a Contempt of Court charge carry? I live in California. What punishment does a Contempt of Court charge carry in relation to non-payment of child support when there was ability to pay?

Answer: It complicates that parent's life immediately. But, only if you win. You have to win if you bring these charges. They may get their passport suspended; their driver's license suspended; their income tax investigated. I'm suing my ex-wife now because she owes me college tuition for our son - to the tune of $18,000.00
