Contempt is a generic term that has multiple meanings.  A person is not in contempt simply because they have caused some infraction that could be considered contemptuous. A person is only in contempt when a Judge specifically orders it. The remedy is the resolution of the particular issue that may be contemptuous.  Examples include violations of visitation schedules and late payment of child support.  Once the isolated matter that caused the problem is resolved, it ordinarily does not have an effect on any other parts of the case.
