Enforcement of Possession
Courts treat the violation of Child Possession Orders with the same seriousness that they treat Child Support Orders. That means that any violation can lead to jail, for six months or longer.
Many violators believe that despite the orders in place, they have the right to decide when their children should visit the other parent - such misbelief has led many people to jail.
The Texas Family Code states that it is the public policy of Texas to "assure that children will have frequent and continuing contact with parents who have shown the ability to act in the best interest of the child."
If your former spouse or co-parent is keeping you from seeing your child or children, in violation of a court ordered possession schedule, you have the absolute right to pursue a contempt action.
The BEAL LAW FIRM can help you pursue your rights.
