Highlight

Failure to comply with provisions of a separation or divorce decree relating to distribution of the parties’ property constitutes contempt of court.

A person aggrieved by contempt of court may seek imposition of a remedial sanction for the contempt by filing a motion for that purpose.

A party seeking a contempt sanction must clearly and satisfactorily prove the alleged contempt was committed.

Whether a contempt has been committed lies within the district court’s sound discretion, which will not be overturned on appeal absent an abuse of discretion.
