Apologies for the delay. Breach of a court order will be considered contempt of court and the court will consider their enforcement options and whether the breach was reasonable. If it was not, the court has discretion to order fines, seizure of assets or imprisonment.
Furthermore, it is more likely than not that a court will agree that failure to comply with an order should result in a costs order also being made against the breaching party. In relation to the payment of arrears, the court will consider a repayment plan or potential lump sum depending on assets at the time.
