If a parent denies the other parent possession/access to their child or fails to pay child support pursuant to an order, the Court may hold that parent in contempt. As punishment, the Court may place that parent on community supervision (probation) instead of incarcerating them. While on community supervision, this Office will monitor the parent's compliance with the Court's order.
In addition, the Office may require that the parent submit to random drug testing, attend a parenting class, complete substance abuse intervention or seek employment assistance. If that parent fails to comply with any condition of community supervision, a motion to revoke seeking incarceration may be filed.
