Attorneys at Matthew J. Crigger PLC Secure Release of Father Jailed for Contempt and Prevent Further Confinement

In the post-divorce contempt proceeding of Hopwood v. Hopwood (No. M2016-01752-COA-R3-CV), the Tennessee Court of Appeals reversed the trial court’s decision to jail the Father until he pad $8,122.43 in obligations to the Mother/Ex-Wife.  Though the court upheld the finding of contempt for failure to satisfy the obligations, the court agreed that the trial court imposed the incorrect remedy and further found that no further confinement was warranted.
