Getting the Child Support the Court Has Ordered
Paying child support is a parent's obligation, with the amount set according to Texas state guidelines in your divorce decree or other court order. My work for the Office of the Attorney General has provided me with knowledge and experience of both sides of enforcement.
- If you are getting little or no money from a parent who is supposed to be paying child support, I will help you file a motion to enforce, which may well lead to the other parent being found in contempt of court, fined or even jailed.
- If you are supposed to be paying child support but have not been sending the full amount because of financial difficulties or because the other parent is denying you visitation, there are two issues. If you are having financial difficulties, let's work together to modify your court order. If you are withholding child support, your best move is to consult today with a Fort Bend county child support and visitation rights attorney to address the real issues.
Enforcement of Your Visitation Rights
If you were given visitation rights by the court, you have the right to a enjoy a presence in your children's lives.
- If the other is not allowing visitation, I can help you protect your rights and get your parenting time re-established.
- If the other parent refuses to return the children on time from visitation, or even refuses to return them at all, the court provides a variety of remedies and sanctions. For late returns, I will file a motion to enforce and sanctions may include fines, fees and jail time. If your ex-spouse refuses to return the children, I will take more decisive actions, including filing a habeas corpus.
The situations vary but the main solution remains the same: You need a lawyer skilled and experienced in enforcement of child support and visitation rights to straighten things out. Call me at 281-201-4879 to get started.
