Domestic Relations – Civil Practice – Contempt – Property Settlement – Consent Order – Real Property – Mortgages (access required)

Howard v. Flowers A consent order required that the plaintiff-husband pay the defendant-wife $50,000 each April in 2009, 2010 and 2011 and he secure those payments with a note and deed of trust in favor of the wife on the husband’s farm valued at $300,000. The husband failed to make the 2010 payment and, at a show cause hearing, testified that he was unwilling to execute the note and deed of trust required by the consent order. The husband’s own testimony was sufficient to support the trial court’s finding of willful noncompliance. We affirm the trial court’s order holding the husband in contempt.
