If the Judge finds you in willful contempt, as a sanction the Judge may order you to pay a purge, go to jail, suspend your driver’s license, etc. Contempt proceedings can have very serious consequences. One is found in willful contempt if they had that ability to follow the Court Order and failed to do so. For example, a parent, who is working earning $50,000.00 gross per year, has a child support obligation in the amount of $500.00 per month and fails to pay their child support per the Court Order. The Judge will likely find the parent in willful contempt.
