How to Enforce Court Orders
Family court orders can be enforced by contempt proceedings. When one spouse is found to be in contempt of an order, he or she may be sentenced to time in jail and/or a fine. The specific order varies, depending on the situation. For example, an order for visitation may include instructions about the visitation time, place where the children are to be exchanged, and other pertinent details.
Family courts in Texas may enforce orders related to:
In some situations, the original order is not sufficiently clear. The judge may choose to clarify the original court order and allow the person who has not been complying a chance to obey. In addition, the judge may choose to suspend the jail sentence, but impose certain conditions. For example, if a person is behind on child support payments, the court may suspend the jail sentence, but require that payments be made.
