Firm Recovers Client Expenses on a Post-Judgement Contempt Application

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

Milana Tepermayster recently received a successful decision after a hearing in Orange County Supreme Court on a post-judgment contempt application in a matrimonial action. The Wife refused to comply with the provisions of the parties' Stipulation of Settlement and Judgment of Divorce in marketing and selling the former marital residence. The Husband retained the firm of Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP to file a contempt application against the Wife and after a hearing, the Husband was awarded money for the expenses he paid to maintain the home until it was sold and the firm was awarded attorney fees in connection with the application.
