The Motion and Affidavit for an Order to Show Cause is your way of telling the court that the opposing party is aware of and willfully refuses to follow the court’s orders. If the court finds merit to your Motion, it may issue an Order to Show Cause demanding that the other party appear before the court to answer your allegations. This proceeding can be used in most non-criminal cases to help enforce a court order. Please read the document, “Instructions for Order to Show Cause Form” (UJS-356), for more information.
