What can I do to make her abide by the Court Order?

Additional Info: My wife and I are in the process of divorcing. We have gone to Court and a Temporary Order was issued regarding the care and custody of our children but she refuses to follow the order now. What can I do to make her abide by the Court Order?

Attorney Answer:

When one Party refuses to abide by the terms of a Temporary Order or Final Judgment of the Court, the method to enforce any such order is by means of filing a contempt action. By doing so you are asking the Court to compel the non-complying party to comply with the terms of what has previously been ordered and or adjudged. In order to prevail on a contempt action, the moving party must prove a clear and unequivocal violation of a Court Order. Short of proving said standard a Judge cannot rule in your favor.
