Plano, TX Order Modification and Enforcement Lawyer
Family Law Attorney for Modifying & Enforcing Support & Custody Orders in Collin County
Divorce decrees, child support, and child custody orders are influenced by your personal and financial circumstances at the time the order is issued. However, life brings changes, and your circumstances are almost certain to reflect this as time goes on. These changes can make it difficult for you to comply with an original order. If you fail to follow the order’s terms, you can face enforcement actions and serious consequences. However, it is often possible to modify an order to prevent hardship and avoid costly penalties.
At the Law Office of Brian Bagley, we represent clients in family law and divorce order modification and enforcement cases. We can help you understand whether you have a case for legal action, and if so, we will work with you to prepare your case to present in court. We have more than 10 years of legal experience, and we can put our knowledge and skills to work on an appropriate solution for you when modifications or enforcement are needed.
Want to change or enforce your family court order? Discuss your case with our Plano attorney. Contact us at (972) 843-7158 to request a consultation.
Enforcement of a Texas Family Court Order
If you are subject to a family court order and fail to uphold it without obtaining approval for a modification, the other party can take legal action to enforce the order. This is true for the types of cases mentioned above, as well as for court-ordered property division in a divorce.
If you want to petition for enforcement, you will need to explain how the other party violated the order and provide supporting evidence, as well as specify the type of relief you are seeking. For example, if your child's other parent has failed to pay child support, you may seek compensation for all past-due payments. Or, if your child's other parent has failed to follow the visitation schedule, you may seek additional time with your child to make up for it.
If you are the subject of an enforcement action, you should respond promptly and work with an attorney who can help you protect your interests. You could be subject to liens and other financial consequences, as well as charges of contempt of court, which could lead to penalties including fines, community supervision, and even imprisonment.
