"Threatening sanctions"? Meaning?

What does it mean when in a family law case that the opposing attorney is "threatening sanctions"?

Is that a reason to fold or give up the fight?

Answer:   It means they will impose consequences for actions they find offensive or criminal.

Depends on whether sticking to your guns is going to get you shot down by a judge or not.
Sanctions are usually monetary fines, levied against a party to a legal action or his attorney, for violating rules of procedure, or for abusing the judicial process. The most severe sanction is the involuntary dismissal, with prejudice, of the complaining party's cause of action, or of the responding party's answer.
