Contempt of Court Laws

Contempt of Court seems to be gaining momentum in a time of economic crisis. How far are the Child Support Agencies and Courts willing to go to seize upon funds from out of work non-custodial parents and from Federal Funds under Title IV-D?

Below, you will find posted a couple of Laws that most people do not know about.


U.S.C.A. Title 18 ss. 401 Note 14 = Intent – “Wrongful intent is required in every case to support a contempt conviction, and proof beyond reasonable doubt.”

US ATTORNEYS – USAM – Title 9 Criminal Resource Manual 783 Elements of the Offense of Contempt = lists the third ‘ELEMENT’ “the violation was willful.”

This is a Pennsylvania Statute but if you are able to get an attorney he may help you find the Statute in your state: This was an important law in my particular case:

P.L.E. 7A ss. 12 = “ABILITY TO COMPLY” Thee key ELEMENT necessary.

I am not a lawyer and do not pretend to be one. I wished I was one, so that I would be allowed to give you legal advice; but I can not give legal advice. I hope that you will be able to use the statutes listed above so that you may ensure that your U.S. Constitutional Rights are not violated.

So, so many people are convicted and/or in jail today for contempt of court. They were trying to find employment, making attempts to pay something… etc. and the opposing acting Attorneys, (who are usually the Director of the Child Support Agency/Not Barred by the State), have given NO PROOF WHAT-SO-EVER to the Judge, proving that an individual had the “ABILITY TO COMPLY.” An essential element absolutely legally needed to convict.

Isn’t it something? I am not allowed to give legal advice or practice law for an individual, yet the Directors of the Child Support Agencies are allowed to present a case against you in a ‘judicial’ civil proceeding! Something seems amiss here.

I Truly believe there will come a day for ‘one immeasurably’ large Class Action Lawsuit, specifically for these violations. What do you think?

Please take a moment and SIGN for Child Support Reform. You do not have to be directly involved in the Child Support System to Sign this Petition. Yet, we are all apart of the System; if someones’ U.S. Constitutional Rights are being violated, you are being violated. How much more Government interference are you able to put up with? Presently, the Children are always the losers; relationships are being ruined, thousands go to jail and thousands commit suicide each year! PLEASE USE THE COMMENT FORM TO SIGN LOCATED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE; Thank You!

“The more of us we have, the more hope we have and hope is the commodity we need; RIGHT NOW!”

About The Author

My name is James (Jim) DeLelys. I have been involved in the Child Support System for nearly 16 years. Over those years I have acquainted myself with countless individuals who have had to bear the burden of a terribly broken and corrupt sytem. It is through 'listening' that I have come to the enevitable conclusion that Child Support Laws and Government interference can not be tolerated anymore.

  1. I would like to say that i am dealing with the district attorney on a case that is for my daughter who isnt in a home, surviving on foodstamps and welfare..she is 24, living on her own and has been for several years, her father only had her for a few years and was not on welfare..i owe $4900 and am facing a 6 month incarceration for my past due child support. they have stripped me of my license and provided me with “defense attorneys” who worked along side the da rather than do their legal duty of providing ME with the defense i am legally entitled to. I have found that in the oregon state statutes and training manual for handling support enforcement that IF YOU HAVE A MODIFICATION ORDER PENDING IT PROVES THAT YOU ARE NOT WILLFULLY IN CONTEMPT! My attorneys, had they been doing their jobs should have told me to file a modification right away..but they instead told me to start making payments and prepare for 6 months in jail if i couldnt make a full payment. I HAVE FOUND INFO ABOUT THE SYSTEM THAT SHOULD BE USED IN OUR DEFENSE BY OUR ATTORNEYS THAT THEY TOTALLY DISREGARD. IF YOU WANT MORE INFO FOR YOUR WEB PAGE EMAIL ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU MORE OF WHAT I FOUND IN THE LAWBOOKS THAT OUR “DEFENSE” ATTORNEYS DONT BOTHER TELLING US…BUT CONTACT ME SOON BECAUSE I HAVE MY ARRAIGNMENT ON THE 12TH OF JULY. GOOD LUCK ALL…I AM IN UTTER DISBELIEF THAT THE JUSTICE DEPT. CAN GET AWAY WITH WHAT THEY ARE DOING. THE MONEY ISNT FOR THE CHILDREN ANYMORE, WHICH IS WHO IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR..ITS FOR THE STATE! FOR EVERY PERSON THEY BULLY INTO PAYING OR PERSON UNABLE TO PAY THAT THEY THROW IN JAIL..THE STATE EARNS MONEY! We cover the excesses of what other programs come up short on.
