Houston Enforcement of Settlement Agreement Attorneys

Helping Houston Families Ensure Their Legal Rights Are Preserved

Just because a divorce was resolved with a settlement agreement doesn’t mean that its terms are any less legitimate than if a judge rendered the final divorce decree. The parties should respect and strive to maintain the spirit of compromise when performing their obligations under the settlement agreement. However, it is not uncommon for one of the parties to change their mind about their agreed-upon obligations.

If you are experiencing difficulties arising from a party’s refusal or inability to comply with the terms of a settlement agreement, you should consult an experienced Houston enforcement of settlement agreement attorney for quality legal counsel. At Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we have over 80 years of combined legal experience assisting Houston residents to enforce the terms of their divorce and settlement agreements to ensure their legal rights are properly respected.

Contact us at (281) 476-9447 to explore your options for enforcing your settlement agreement.

Enforcing a Marital Settlement Agreement

A settlement agreement has the same legal force and effect as a divorce decree rendered by a judge because the terms of the settlement agreement are ratified by the court when issuing its final judgment in your divorce. As a result, enforcement procedures for judge-made divorce decrees are available for enforcing marital settlement agreements.

We have experience with the following enforcement issues regarding marital settlement agreements:

  • Court writs for enforcing child support obligations
  • Custody orders under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act
  • Child and spousal support orders under the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act
  • Enforcing property division through sequestration or attachment
  • Contempt of court
