Enforcement of orders

Enforcement of orders

Part XIII provides generally in relation to enforcement of orders and provides broad powers. Where non-compliance or disobedience of judgments, orders rules or other processes of the court constitutes contempt, those powers can include fines or prison (or both) without specified upper limit. (We note that imprisonment rarely occurs in the Family Court or the Federal Circuit Court.) See Contempt.
