Self-Help Forms - Motion for Contempt
This free interactive form guides you through a step-by-step interview. At the end of the interview, you can download the documents needed to file a Motion of Contempt. This form packet includes a sample “Motion for Contempt” for use in cases where the opposing party is not following a Court Order. Some examples are when the opposing party is not allowing visitation of a child as stated in the Court Order or paying child support as stated in the Court Order.
When the Court makes an Order, the Court does that with the full force and authority of the State of Arkansas, and the Order is the law. If someone disobeys the Order, the Court has the power to hold that person in “contempt of court.” When you file a Motion for Contempt, you tell the Court that the other person has disobeyed the Order.
