Houston Family Lawyer Handles Contempt and Enforcement Actions

Texas advocate litigates matters involving custody and support orders

After the turmoil of a divorce or separation, most spouses expect to gain a sense of normalcy once the final orders are entered. Unfortunately, some former husbands and wives refuse to abide by decisions on issues such as child support, custody and alimony. In these situations, you need a tough, smart Texas lawyer to take prompt action to enforce your rights. Our Houston family law firm, Robert Reid McInvale, Attorney at Law, litigates contempt and enforcement action for clients throughout the area, securing compliance with divorce terms in an effective, efficient manner. In more than 35 years of legal practice, Robert Reid McInvale has earned the highest praise from clients and colleagues, including an AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, a recognition of his legal ability and ethics by attorneys familiar with his work. Because the practice concentrates entirely on family law, we are able to provide clients with highly focused and experienced counsel.

Knowledgeable Texas lawyer advises clients in support and custody disputes

Serving clients throughout the Houston area, our firm protects the rights of Texans in cases relating to:

  • Nonpayment of child support — Noncustodial parents have a legal and moral duty to pay child support for their sons and daughters. The law appropriately treats these matters seriously and can incarcerate nonsupportive parents for contempt. Even if a parent has lost their job or is upset about a custody matter, they are not entitled to adjust their child support without court authorization. Our firm takes swift action to safeguard children and parents in these matters.
  • Missing alimony — Spousal support is often the most highly contested issue in a divorce, and bitter exes sometimes ignore their obligations. We are not afraid to take on former husbands and wives to get you what you are entitled to or defend against unjust claims.
  • Refusal to abide by custody or visitation terms — Arrangements for child custody and visitation must be strictly adhered to in order to give sons and daughters the best chance to maintain strong relationships with both parents. Even if the infraction seems minor, you should assert your rights so you can avert future problems.
  • Failure to honor property division orders — In some instances, determinations under Texas community property law requires one party to maintain or sell a certain asset. When disputes arise over compliance with these terms, our firm provides comprehensive legal support until the matter is resolved.

Even if you have had trouble with a previous contempt or enforcement action, we can assist you. In many cases, we have obtained successful results for clients who have come to us after a previous family lawyer has failed to achieve their objectives.
