Austin Area Enforcement Lawyers
Court orders are serious business, and ignoring a court order can have vast consequences both on the person violating a court order and the person seeking enforcement of a court order. Under penalty of law, parties may not break the provisions of a court order with respect to spousal support, child support, visitation rights, or property divisions. In order to enforce a court order, a petition for enforcement must be filed, and a hearing will be held to determine whether or not the order has been violated.
If a court believes that an order has been violated, the judge can order that the violating party comply with the order. Punishment by a judge can include ordering the violating party to pay attorney's fees, ordering fines to be paid, and even placing an individual in jail or on probation. Because of the extreme consequences of enforcement actions, whether you are seeking to enforce a court order or are being accused of violating a court order, you will need experienced and aggressive lawyers who are willing to advocate for your rights.
