SECTION 1071
Failure to comply with terms and conditions of suspended judgment
Family Court Act (FCT) CHAPTER 686, ARTICLE 10, PART 7
§ 1071. Failure to comply with terms and conditions of suspended
judgment. If, prior to the expiration of the period of the suspended
judgment, a motion or order to show cause is filed that alleges that a
parent or other person legally responsible for a child's care violated
the terms and conditions of a suspended judgment issued under section
one thousand fifty-three of this article, the period of the suspended
judgment shall be tolled pending disposition of the motion or order to
show cause. If, after hearing, the court is satisfied by competent proof
that the parent or other person violated the order of suspended
judgment, the court may revoke the suspension of judgment and enter any
order that might have been made at the time judgment was suspended.
