Generally, in Connecticut, a person will not be found in contempt of court for missing one payment of alimony. In order for a court to find contempt, they must find that a person has the ability and means to comply with a court order but willfully is refusing to comply. You may file a motion for contempt for this issue if you choose, but it would be best to sit down with an experienced divorce attorney to educate you on the correct best legal path to take.
