Case Law Development: My Husband Made Me Do It not a Defense to Contempt for Failure to Provide Visitation

The Alabama Court of Appeals upheld a contempt conviction against Mother for failing to deliver her children to Grandparents for their court-ordered visitation.  The court rejected Mother’s argument that she had merely passively acquiesced in her husband’s refusal to comply with the visitation order.  L.A. v. R.H., 2005 Ala. Civ. App. LEXIS 670 (November 10, 2005)
