Southeast Texas Property Division Enforcement Attorneys

A divorce decree is not just a legally binding document, but a court order. Enforcement of a divorce decree may be necessary if one of the parties fails to:

  • Comply with the custody arrangement or visitation schedule
  • Pay court-ordered child or spousal support
  • Transfer assets or property as outlined in the property settlement

If your ex-spouse is not complying with your divorce decree, our attorneys will vigorously protect your rights and enforce the original court order. Mediation and negotiation can be used to help you and the other party reach an agreement outside of the courtroom. If your case calls for aggressive action, you can rest assured that we are prepared to take your case to court.

If property or assets were omitted from your divorce decree, either intentionally or accidentally, we will assist you in petitioning the court to order the division of undivided assets. Time is of the essence in these cases, so if you believe that an asset was omitted from your decree, it is important to contact us as soon as possible.
