My ex wife is in contempt of court . What’s going to happen?
Lawyer: Nisha Jones,
 replied 7 months ago

If she was charged with contempt of court then a trial will take place in front of a jury.

If this is a criminal contempt of court charge, and she is found to be guilty, she can face up to 6 months in jail.

If this is a civil contempt charge (for example for the non payment of alimony or child support, and she's found guilty, she won't face jail time but she can be found to be in arrears for payment, and the judge can put measures in place to ensure future payment.

See:

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
