Austin, Texas: Legal Help with Divorce Decree and SAPCR Enforcement

Child Custody Enforcement — Child Support Enforcement — Child Visitation Enforcement — Spousal Support Enforcement

The family law offices of Linda Stanley P.L.L.C. have substantial experience representing clients in enforcement actions.

Enforcement of court orders (including divorce decrees) may become necessary if:

  • A parent fails to pay child support
  • A parent refuses to allow visitation that was agreed on or ordered
  • A non-custodial parent refuses to return the child to the custodial parent
  • A custodial parent moves out of state or to another part of Texas without getting the approval of the non-custodial parent
  • An ex-spouse fails to pay spousal support

In any of these situations, you may need the assistance of an experienced family law attorney to enforce the original divorce decree or SAPCR order. A courtroom battle may not be necessary, and Linda Stanley — has decades of experience helping clients decide which type of dispute resolution process will work best for them and their families — both in terms of the family's circumstances and our individual client's budget.

  • Mediation: Well-trained in mediation, Ms. Stanley will mediate child support enforcement agreements between parents.
  • Collaborative family law: In collaborative law, the parties agree at the beginning of the process that they will work together to reach a decision about child support enforcement or other enforcement actions. The spouses are represented by lawyers who also commit to helping their clients reach agreement without the need for an expensive and time-consuming litigation.
  • Petitions for enforcement and contempt: If mediation or collaborative law does not work, we will file an action for enforcement and contempt on behalf of our client. We also represent clients against whom contempt actions have been filed.
