Enforcement Of Court Orders in Texas
Obtaining orders that are fair and workable for your family in a Texas divorce is one important victory in any family law case. Unfortunately, your need for legal recourse and protection under the law may not end there. Enforcement of the court orders issued in your divorce case may require you to file a contempt of court petition or take other decisive action.
Problems Getting Child Support? Do You Need To Force Your Ex-Spouse To Pay?
The most common scenario leading to an enforcement action in Texas involves child support delinquency. When the payor falls way behind on court-ordered child support, waiting for that violation to be discovered through the standard review process may not be an option. Hiring an attorney to expose the facts of the situation and take action may be vital to your financial stability.
