Contempt of court is to disobey a court/s order. In bankruptcy, a debtor can file a motion to find a creditor in contempt of court for numerous reasons. One example is when your wages are being garnished and you file bankruptcy and the wages are continuing to be garnished. This is an action in contempt of court. A contempt motion usually results in a court hearing.
Another example of contempt is continuing a court lawsuit for a debt that is discharged in a bankruptcy case. For more information on bankruptcy in Houston, contact the Rashid Law Firm at 832-209-8833.
