Enforcement of Visitation Rights
Most people don't realize that when the other parent denies you your court ordered access to your children, there are steps you can take to enforce your rights. Just like child support, if a parent denies the other parent their court ordered visitation time, the parent denying the visitation can be held in contempt of court. Contempt carries a punishment of up to six months in jail and/or up to a $500 fine. In most instances the offending party will have to pay the other parties attorney fees as well.
If you have been denied your court ordered visitation rights, contact The Griffin Firm for a consultation to discuss your rights and what actions you can take. Doing nothing will only empower the other person to continue to deny you your visitation.
Enforcement of Child Support
It's hard enough raising a child on your own, but when you can't get any financial help from the other parent it can be even more difficult. Wade L. Griffin, Jr. has over five years’ experience working for the Texas Attorney General's Child Support Division and over a decade in practicing
family law. He knows the various means and legal mechanisms in enforcing a child support obligation. This includes such actions as seeking contempt, which includes up to six months in jail and/or up to a $500 fine for the offending party; seeking a license suspension, which includes all state issued licenses, not just drivers licenses; filing of liens against ones property or bank accounts; issuing withholding orders to the payer's employer, so the money comes directly out of his/her paycheck. When you need help getting your childsupport, contact The Griffin Firm, we can help.
