What Orders Can Be Enforced?
Enforcement simply means the process by which one person is brought to obey a court order. In family law, court enforcement can deal with a wide range of matters.
Our attorneys can help you enforce orders regarding:
- Visitation (child custody)
- Monthly child support
- Child healthcare costs
- Property division
- Spousal maintenance (alimony)
If court orders are not followed, the person can be found in contempt of court. Penalties may include fines and/or jail time.
How Does a Court Order Become Enforceable through Contempt?
The court order must be of a type that is enforceable by contempt per a Texas statute. A court order must be clear and specific for it to be enforceable through contempt. This means the order must include specific commands, dates, times, locations, and more down to the smallest detail. If the court order is not clear, the individual cannot be held in contempt, but the order can be revised for clarity.
