First of all the statute of limitations to collect is expired.

And next can you tell me what the contempt would be for?

Was a bench warrant issued for your wife?

Hello

I see.

Well, I suggest then that she will want to appear if there is a court date.

And she can explain that this matter stems back 14 years ago and therefore the statute of limitations to collect is expired and there is no basis for a case.
