Enforcement of Child Support Orders

A court order is a powerful thing, but there are very strict laws about what you can and cannot do when it comes to enforcing it. Many non-family law Texas lawyers do not understand how these complex cases work, so trying to enforce orders on your own is a very risky move. Speak to an attorney who knows how the process works.

We are dedicated to helping clients get what they deserve from their child support and child custody plans. Taking the time to listen to your concerns and understand the unique needs of your family, we will explain how the enforcement process works, so you can take smart steps toward resolving your concerns as quickly as possible.

Getting It Right the First Time

When you file a petition with the court to enforce the court orders, you have to get it right the first time. If your petition is dismissed, you may lose the right to go back and try again. The stakes are very high in these cases, because if you win and the court enforces your order, the other party may face jail time.

Whether you have monetary concerns or you are not getting the visitation rights you deserve, we can help you assess your options and take your case to the courts:

  • Child support: When you do not receive the child support payments allotted in your court order, there are very serious consequences for you and your children. Do not hesitate to make sure you have the financial support you need for them.
  • Child custody: Noncustodial parents have rights too. Far too often, parents with physical custody fail to honor the visitation rights of their co-parents. If your co-parent is keeping your kids from you, it is time to seek a visitation enforcement order.
