You would first have to demonstrate there was an Order from the Court requiring the person to do or not do something. Then, you would have to show they violated the Court order and set a hearing and require them to show cause, as to why they failed to comply. If the Judge determines they violated the order, they would be in contempt and the Judge could impose a fine or possible place them in jail.
