The issue is whether a custody order may be modified at a contempt proceeding if a petition to modify is not pending before the court. A number of cases have been decided by the Superior Court that indicate a custody order may not be modified by a trial court at a contempt proceeding if a petition to modify has not been filed and served and properly before the court at the time of the contempt hearing. The reason for the prohibition of such action is that it would deprive the parties of their due process rights.
