What To Know About Enforcement In Texas
Enforcement is the process by which the state ensures compliance with a court order. As you have no doubt already experienced, it can be very difficult to force one party to obey a court order. The state of Texas has several methods of enforcement, such as:
- Wage garnishment
- Withholding of tax refunds
- Asset seizure
- Denial of a passport
- Driver’s license suspension or revocation
- Jail time
The first step is to petition the court for a motion to enforce a court order. Then, the court will schedule a hearing at which the other party must show up and explain their failure to comply with the order. A judge will then decide whether to impose enforcement actions. If the other party fails to attend the hearing, the judge will likely impose enforcement actions by default.
At The Law Office of Amy R. Harris PLLC, we can often get the other party to comply with an existing order through mediation. When necessary, though, we will not hesitate to go to court.
