Have you noticed a large number of contempt motions in family court? What percent actually result in penalties? In Connecticut the answers: A lot; very few. (The court has not responded to our request for data on this.)
A first step towards a court that supports the family: impose a series of fines for most contempt motions. First violation of a court order results in a $50 fine. Second violation, $100 and so on. Do you think that this policy would result in better enforcement of orders for parental access to their children? And reduce time and money spent in court?
