Dallas Family Law Contempt Attorney

Dallas Fort Worth Contempt Attorney

In divorce matters, post-decree modifications must be recognized by the court in order to be considered official and enforceable. If the court has not approved a change, contempt charges can be brought against the offending party.

Texas contempt attorney Scott Palmer will help you file for contempt charges against your former spouse if the terms of a divorce or modification are not being followed. He will also defend you against a contempt charge.

Any change to divorce terms that is not officially recognized by the court can be grounds for being found in contempt. Several specific issues that can bring about a contempt charge are:

  • Relocation of the children
  • Failure to pay spousal support
  • Failure to pay child support
  • Denial of visitation rights
  • Failure to exercise visitation rights

Individual circumstances may bring about the temporary or permanent need to change the terms of your divorce. However, even if your spouse agrees to a modification, the court must also approve the proposed modification to avoid being found in contempt. If this step is not taken, you can face serious consequences, including:

  • Jail
  • Probation
  • Fines
  • Makeup visitation
  • Seizure of your property

If you have not acquired the approval of the court before making a change in your divorce terms, Scott Palmer can assist you in contempt actions. Likewise, if your spouse has unilaterally decided to modify the terms of your divorce, you can take legal steps that can require your spouse to adhere to the original divorce decree.

Contact contempt lawyer Scott Palmer for assistance with these issues. He will arrange for an initial consultation, during which he will evaluate your case and advise you of your legal options.
