A Determined Marietta Lawyer Defending Contempt Charges
I am attorney Christina Stahl, and I have more than 15 years of experience helping individuals who have been charged with contempt or are trying to get their former spouse or partner to abide by a court order.

Contempt charges can include:

- Failure to return property
- Failure to pay for uncovered medical expenses for a child
- Harming the other spouse’s credit
- Denying visitation
