Holding Ex-Spouses Accountable in Johnson County & Greater Fort Worth
After a final court order has been issued in a divorce case, you might assume that your problems are over. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. It may become necessary to enforce a court order should a person fail to pay child support or spousal support, if you are being denied your visitation rights, or if any other court order is being violated or ignored. The process of enforcing a court order is not a simple one, so make sure to consult with a Burleson enforcement attorney as soon as possible if you need to file a motion for enforcement.
When Can I Request Enforcement in Texas?
The laws and regulations for motions for enforcement are found in Texas Family Code § 157.001-157.426.
In general, a motion for enforcement must include the following information:
- The alleged violation
- The manner of noncompliance
- The relief requested
- The signature of the movant or their attorney
The statute specifically states that this information must be "in ordinary and concise language," which is why it is imperative to hire an experienced divorce attorney for counsel and guidance in a motion for enforcement. Otherwise, your motion could be denied and you will continue suffering from unfair denial of your rights.
