The Consequences of Violating & Ignoring Court Orders

Parties may not violate the provisions of a court order, and ignoring a court order can have serious consequences for both parties involved. Before an order can be enforced, a petition for enforcement must be filed, and a hearing held to determine whether the order has been violated.

If a court determines that an order has been violated, the judge can order the party violating the order to comply with the terms. Failure to follow a court order can result in a court ordering the violating party to pay attorney's fees, ordering the violating party to pay fines, and even going to jail or placing the violating party on probation. Due to the possibly severe consequences of enforcement suits, you need an experienced Austin family lawyer who can effectively advocate for your rights.
