Committal Proceedings are one of the common ways of enforcing orders obtained in family matters. The procedural requirements are highly technical, and the proceedings are quasi criminal in nature. Proof of contempt of court is on a ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ basis. This talk will give an overview of committal proceedings, and highlight pitfalls to avoid. While the examples will be from the area of family Law, the procedural session of the talk is of general application in civil matters.
