The Robinowitz Law Firm, P.C., has vast experience both prosecuting and defending enforcement cases. The prosecution and defense of child support and visitation issues requires family law experience to present the facts and criminal law experience to determine the appropriate punishment or exoneration. I can handle both the family court and criminal aspects of your child support enforcement issue.
County authorities are serious about child support enforcement. Failure to make your child support payments on time may lead to contempt of court charges, which could entail a punishment of fines, jail time and/or probation. The penalty of jail time is very realistic especially in situations where the order has been previously violated. Many judges order weekends in jail so the delinquent parent can continue to work during the week to pay off the arrears.
Due to the harsh penalties in enforcement actions, the rules from the Texas Family Code must be strictly followed. As a seasoned trial attorney, I have vast experience making sure that all of the rules and technicalities are followed.
Child Support Payments Must Not Interfere With Visitation Rights
If a parent is not letting the other parent see his child, in violation of the visitation possession order, that parent may also face contempt charges. It is critical to prove that the interference is habitual. I counsel clients on how to document every instance, with precise dates and times, preferably with witnesses.
