Enforcement of Divorce Decree
Learn Your Options from an Experienced Fort Worth Divorce Lawyer
Unfortunately, many Texans find themselves contemplating more legal action shortly after a long and difficult divorce. This is because their ex-spouse has refused to comply with the terms of the court’s divorce decree, leaving their dependent spouse and sometimes their children without the support they need. When this happens, it may be time for the affected ex-spouse to start considering an enforcement action.

When to File for Enforcement
When the court makes a final divorce decree, it assumes that both ex-spouses will uphold their ongoing responsibilities in a timely matter. When one ex-spouse regularly or grievously fails to do this, the court can take action against that individual (usually hold them in contempt of court) so that they fulfill the terms of the decree.
Enforcement can apply to matters concerning:
It is important in these cases that those filing for enforcement use clear and specific language to describe the divorce decree violations. Many assume that this is easy to do, but often these motions are thrown out due to language that is too vague for the court to rule on. Our Fort Worth family attorneys can help you craft a clear and exacting filing so that court is effectively compelled to find your spouse in contempt.
