HB 1192 (2024)

Create process for contempt in domestic relations court cases


Provides a process, standards, and remedies for contempt of court in domestic relations matters. According to the Judicial Branch, while this bill may create a higher standard for a finding of contempt, it also includes detention as a sanction which may provide additional incentive to bring a motion. According to the House Children and Family Law Committee, this bill "addresses the rise in contempt cases in family court, giving the judge latitude to assess penalties."
