Either the parent receiving child support payments or the State of Texas can enforce a child support obligation. When the obligor (parent who was ordered to pay support) stops making child support payments, we handle child support enforcement and\or contempt actions and will pursue retroactive support payments. We also handle the defense of such claims.
When an obligor (spouse who was ordered to pay maintenance) stops making spousal maintenance\alimony payments, we handle the enforcement and\or contempt actions and will pursue retroactive payments. We also handle the defense of such claims.
When a party fails to transfer property which was ordered to be transferred to another party, we can help enforce that transfer and division of marital property. We can also handle the defense of such claims, when made by a party seeking the division.
When a party fails to abide by the possession and access provisions of a Final Order, we can help enforce those provisions. We can also handle the defense of such claims, when made by a parent seeking enforcement.
