Laredo Court Enforcement Lawyer

A divorce is not only a major emotional undertaking, but it is also a major legal undertaking.
That means that after the divorce is finalized, both you and your former spouse will have legal responsibilities. If either of you fails to comply, a judge can compel you to. 

If your former partner refuses to comply with a divorce order, the first step is to hire a qualified Laredo court enforcement lawyer to help you file a claim.

Division of Property Enforcement in Laredo

When you are going through a divorce, you need a knowledgeable lawyer on your side. You need someone that can help you understand the legal steps of divorce and make sure you get the Laredo court enforcement that you deserve.

When you get divorced, the court determines how the assets and debts are split between the two former partners

It is then your responsibility to follow through on those orders – to sell things that need to be sold, fill out the necessary paperwork, and pay off debts.

In some cases, people are confused about how they are supposed to comply with the divorce decree

If specific details are not outlined, and the two parties are in disagreement, they can request a clarifying order.

However, if your ex-spouse fails to do the things that they need to do, you can ask a judge to enforce the decree. You will need to do this within two years of the divorce

That is why it is vital to make sure you are timely in filing a suit if they have not sold property, refused to grant you your portion of shared assets, or failed to pay off debts. However, you do need to wait at least 30 days after the finalization of the divorce to file for enforcement.

If the ex-spouse does not comply with the court order, you can file for delivery of property. That means that the court will order the delivery of property.

If they do not comply with that order, the court can award you a money judgment. Finally, you could draft an order of contempt. Someone found in contempt of court can be ordered jail time or fines. Ultimately, you deserve your half of the property, and the court will do their part to make sure you receive it.

Child Custody and Support Enforcement

If children are involved in a divorce, their well-being is the top priority of the state of Texas. Usually, it is also the top priority of both parents. Many people can effectively co-parent because they recognize that the most important thing is the well-being of their kids. However, sometimes things do not go that way.

Sometimes, one parent refuses to comply with the child support portion of a divorce order

Sometimes this is because they believe the custodial parent won’t use it well. Other times, they don’t think they can afford it. In other cases, the noncustodial parent simply does not want to pay it. Whatever the reason, not paying child support is illegal. If a person believes that the child support order needs to be changed, possibly because their financial situation has changed, they need to file for a modification.

If you are the custodial parent and your co-parent has not been paying their court-ordered support, you can pursue them legally.

Child support is required to help the custodial parent give their children the best childhood possible. We understand that it can be stressful to pursue litigation against your former spouse; however, it is still your responsibility to your children. They deserve to receive both parent’s financial support.

However, many parents forget that the courts handle enforcement and, instead, try illegal methods of getting what they need.

A popular tactic is reducing visits. Visitation cannot be
reduced because a parent is not paying child support. Children deserve to have relationships
with both of their children. That means child support is not connected to visitation. If you are the
noncustodial parent and your former spouse is withholding visitation for any reason, you have
the right to pursue this with out Laredo court enforcement atorneys. All changes to child support and custody need to go through
the courts.

We know it can be challenging to raise children with someone after your relationship has ended

If you and your former partner are not on good terms, it can be even more difficult. However, you will need to collaborate in the project of raising children until your kids have reached adulthood.
