Enforcing Child Support and Visitation

Are you not receiving court-ordered child support or access to your children? Facing contempt proceedings for failure to comply? Texas courts take a dim view of parents who defy financial support obligations, or parents who balk at allowing visitation. Pfister, Borserine & Associates takes aggressive legal action to safeguard your rights.

Our Frisco, Texas family law practice represents clients from Collin County, Denton County, North Dallas, and throughout North Texas in enforcement issues relating to child support and visitation orders. Call 972-725-1308.

Child Support Enforcement

Texas courts can and will enforce child support orders if the decree was granted in Texas, or the non-payer (custodial parent) resides in Texas. Remedies and punishments for failure to pay child support can include:

  • Jail time
  • Suspension of state issued licenses (driving, hunting, firearms, professional)
  • Wage garnishment
  • Liens against tax returns, bank accounts, retirement funds, and other assets

We can initiate contempt proceedings for parents owed past due support, or represent the parent who is struggling to provide child support and now facing serious consequences. Contact us today to discuss your rights and legal options.

Visitation Enforcement

Texas judges will put parents in jail — mothers or fathers — for refusing court-ordered access or failing to turn over children as prescribed in the visitation agreement. The court will typically order make-up visitation time for the affected parent.

In cases of custodial parents who chronically interfere with visitation, the court can reverse custody and award standard possession to the other parent. Likewise, non-custodial parents who repeatedly fail to turn over the child may lose access altogether.

If the other parent is withholding access or you are accused of violating a visitation order, contact Pfister, Borserine & Associates immediately. Enforcement Lawyer John J. Pfister, Jr., Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, offers the experienced legal advice you need.

Call 972-725-1308 to discuss your situation and your legal options. We offer weekend and evening appointments, and our phones are answered 24 hours a day.
