Experienced Attorney Representation In Contempt Matters

Have you received a complaint for contempt along with a summons? This is a serious issue that you need to address immediately. If you are found to be in contempt for not following court orders, you could be locked up. With the help of an experienced lawyer at the law firm of Manzi, Seccareccio & Merwin, P.C., in Lowell, Massachusetts, you can straighten this matter out.

Reasons For Contempt Complaints

Failure to pay support, either child support or alimony, is one of the most common reasons for receiving a complaint for contempt. You may also receive a complaint if you allegedly failed to follow court orders related to child custody and visitation or property division.

Our first step will be to determine what happened. Have you been falsely accused? Perhaps you did fall behind on alimony or child support payments, but you have a legitimate reason such as the loss of a job. We will review your options to help you stay out of jail. In some cases, it may be appropriate to seek modification of an order. If appropriate, we will seek to modify child support payments to match your current income level.

At our firm, you will find zealous family law advocates. With more than 35 years of combined experience on our side, we know just how complex these matters can be. We will work hard to sort things out so you can move on with your life. Our services are available to clients in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.
