Court Order Enforcement Attorneys in Houston

Protecting Your Rights & Ensuring Court Orders Are Upheld

Once you finalize a divorce, child custody dispute, or any other type of family matter, you will walk away with a court order outlining each party’s rights and responsibilities. Each party is expected to adhere to the terms of this order. Any failure to do so would put that person in contempt of court.

If your ex-spouse or the other party in your family court order is failing to adhere to the original order, you should seek legal action with the help of Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law. Our court order enforcement attorneys in Houston can ensure that the court order is respected. Alternatively, we can also represent you if you are accused of violating a court order. We may even be able to help you seek modifications if you are financially or otherwise unable to maintain your court-ordered obligations.

Give us a call at (281) 476-9447 or contact us online to learn more about the court order enforcement process.

What to Do When Court Orders Are Violated

Finally – you’ve resolved your child custody dispute and the court has ordered an access schedule outlining when you and your ex-spouse will have possession of your child. But now your ex is failing to respect this schedule, forgetting to pick the child up at the agreed-upon time and maintaining possession longer than what was agreed on. What are your options?

Your ex-spouse can be found in contempt of court for this violation. First and foremost, you should attempt to resolve this dispute with your ex amicably. If he or she fails to cooperate, our court enforcement lawyers in Houston can help you file a motion for enforcement with the court. The court can then order the other party to perform specific actions.

If the person is found in contempt of court, he or she can be penalized with:

  • Restricted rights/further orders to comply with
