Court Dismissed Contempt Claim Where There Was No Violation Of The Judgment

In Caputo v. Caputo, the Fourth District Court of Appeals for the State of Florida upheld the trial court’s dismissal of the former wife’s claim that the former husband should be held in contempt for having enrolled their child in day care because the final judgment of divorce had not addressed daycare.

While the trial court had also granted the former husband attorney’s fees the appellate court dismissed the appeal of the order awarding them as it was an unappeasable final order.  Only after both entitlement and the amount of the fees had been determined by the trial court would the attorney’s fees order be appealable.
