Show Cause / Family Support Contempt

The Show Cause / Family Support Contempt unit represents adults who are alleged to have violated a civil court order. In Superior Court, DAC represents non-custodial parents in child support contempt cases brought by the Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney's Office to enforce child support orders entered by a Superior Court or an administrative court.

DAC will assign an attorney from the community to represent an indigent party in a Family Law contempt case brought by a private party.
