Enforcement Of Child Custody And Child Support Orders

Enforcement Of Custody And Support Orders

Are you not receiving court-ordered child support or access to your children? Facing contempt proceedings for failure to comply? Texas courts take a harsh view of parents who do not abide by court ordered financial support obligations, or parents who wrongfully deny visitation. The attorneys at Pfister Family Law takes aggressive legal action to safeguard your rights.

The attorneys at our Frisco, Texas, family law practice represent clients in enforcement of custody order issues relating to child support and visitation orders.

CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT

Texas courts can and will enforce child support orders if the decree was granted in Texas, or the nonpayer (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.

VISITATION ENFORCEMENT

Texas judges can put parents in jail — mothers or fathers — for 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 primary possession to the other parent.

If the other parent is withholding access or you are accused of violating a visitation order, contact Pfister Family Law 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.

In Frisco, we serve Collin County, Denton County, Dallas County, Tarrant County and surrounding counties.
