Enforcement Attorneys in Houston

Taking Legal Steps If Your Spouse Won’t Cooperate

Protecting and justifying your custody, support, and property rights following a divorce can be a stressful, drawn-out process. It’s doubly frustrating when a former spouse refuses to observe court judgments. Fortunately, you have strong legal protections if your former spouse or partner is found to be in contempt of court.

Stand up for your rights. Call (281) 612-5443 for help enforcing court judgments after a divorce.

Grounds for Contempt

Contempt of court is typically a consequence of failing to comply with a court order. If a party is found to be in contempt, they may be given a less favorable judgement or even issued a fine or other penalty.

The opposing party may be found in contempt of court for several reasons, including:

  • Stopping spousal support/alimony payments
  • Selling property that was awarded to you in the divorce decree
  • Refusing to reimburse you for out-of-pocket medical expenses for your child
  • Refusing to follow the terms of your child visitation or child custody agreement

Enforcing Child Support Obligations

If a former spouse or partner won’t pay support, it is possible to place a lien against their bank accounts or request that the court suspend any license issued to him or her by the state of Texas. We can even testify to the amount of child support arrearages (past due amounts) owed.

If you are looking for a Houston enforcement lawyer to assist you in enforcing your court order, Cynthia Tracy, Attorney at Law, P.C., can go the extra mile for you. Cynthia has worked as a managing attorney for the Texas Attorney General’s Office and is very familiar with Texas family law policies and procedures.
