Can an Amicus Attorney hold me in contempt and put me in jail for failure to pay her ORDERED legal fees?

Houston, TX |

Can an Amicus Attorney hold me in contempt and put me in jail for failure to pay her COURT-ORDERED legal fees? I read that an Amicus Attorney cannot request "sanction fees" somewhere. Also, can Opposing Counsel file a motion for contempt for me not paying the Amicus Fees...like filing on her behalf?

  1. I have no opinion regarding the propriety of the order. A judge can hold you in contempt for failing to comply with the order and that can result in incarceration.
