Enforcements

Your remedy to force your former spouse to uphold their court-mandated duty post-divorce is called an “enforcement.” There may be violations of injunctions regarding your children and/or property rights during or after the divorce, modification, or other suit. When a motion for enforcement is filed, it gives the court the ability to provide the relief you’re looking for. On this site, we’ve provided a great deal of information about enforcing family court orders for your benefit.

What Type of Order Can We Help Enforce?

Texas family law recognizes that many of the arrangements concluded in a divorce might need to be revisited when a job loss, an illness or a child’s special needs require that a child support amount or visitation schedule needs to be changed. Our child custody or support modification lawyers can tell you whether the new circumstances in your case are likely to justify adjustments to an order currently in effect. We can also let you know whether your opposition to a proposed modification will get any traction with the court.

Additionally, our lawyers can also advise you about the considerations at stake when a divorced parent, particularly the one with primary residential custody, proposes relocating with the child to a distant city, another state or a foreign country.
