How are court orders enforced in California?

The methods taken to enforce an order or judgment depend on the specific matter at hand. There are a number of different orders that can be brought to the attention of the court when enforcement is necessary, including:

If the court order was willfully broken by one party, they may be held in contempt of court for their actions. Contempt penalties are harsh and can be used to enforce the family law order. A person guilty of contempt of court could be charged with community service, imprisonment, or fines. Judges take such violations seriously, refusing to put up with individuals who don’t follow through as directed.
