Enforcement of Divorce Decree

Retain Fort Worth Enforcement Representation

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 these terms are ignored by one spouse, legal action is called for. Our dedicated Fort Worth enforcement attorneys are well-versed in the enforcement process and can help you make this violation against you and your family apparent to the court.

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.
