Enforcement

Enforcement Lawyer in The Woodlands & Surrounding Areas

If you have been a party to a family law suit resulting in an order from a court and the other party (ex-spouse, parent, opposing party) is failing to abide by the terms of that order, whether it concerns the conservatorship, possession, terms and conditions of possession, support, or spousal maintenance, it may be time to discuss the need to enforce the order with one of the knowledgeable and experienced attorneys at Spielvogel & Spielvogel, P.C. Sometimes the issue can be resolved by sending a letter to the other party outlining the complaints and requesting compliance before further litigation becomes necessary.

Other times it may be necessary to file a petition in the court that issued the order and schedule a hearing for the court to determine if a violation has occurred and if so, what repercussion the wrong-doer should face as a result of the violation. Being held in contempt of court for violating an order of the court could result in fines, incarceration, probation, or other sanctions. Even if a party is not held in contempt, there are other remedies available to a court to redress the situation, including but not limited to, judgments, wage assignments, or an award of additional possession periods for those refused.
