The parties to a divorce or other family law case have a wide range of methods to enforce and carry out the terms and conditions of a divorce decree or order in a suit affecting the parent child relationship (SAPCR). The family courts have a variety of methods for enforcing their orders. These methods include compliance hearings, orders for the parent violating the order to pay attorney fees you incur, and holding the violator in contempt of court. Upon holding an individual in contempt, the court can punish the individual with up to six months in jail and can assess a fine up to $500 for each violation. Contempt actions are most frequently utilized in association with failure to render payment for child support; though, they are used to enforce visitation and other court orders as well. If you are experiencing continuous problems with visitation or support, you should consult the family lawyers at The Law Office of Bryan Fagan, PLLC concerning your enforcement rights.

Contact The Law Office of Bryan Fagans attorneys for assistance with child support, visitation or property division enforcement. If you are not receiving the child support, visitation, or property the court awarded to you, you may bring an enforcement action. Our attorneys will aggressively represent you and assist in enforcing the prior orders of the court.

  2. Custody and Visitation Enforcement
  3. Property Division Enforcement


At The Law Office of Bryan Fagan, PLLC we are committed to ensuring the wellbeing of your children. When major changes occur with the parents that affect the needs of children, there may be a need to modify custody, child support, or visitation rights. Our attorneys will assist you in providing effective solutions that protect your rights and the best interest of your children.

Provisions for custody, visitation, and child support can be modified if conditions dictate that the child's best interests would be served by the modification. Family law courts have the authority to modify custody, visitation, and support of minor children after a divorce or entry of a SAPCR order. If there is a substantial reason you think a modification is advantageous to your children, you should contact the family lawyers at The Law Office of Bryan Fagan, PLLC for a consultation concerning the specific facts of your case.

  1. Child Support Modification
  2. Custody Modification
  3. Visitation Modification
  4. Parental Relocation


If you are in the process of adopting a child, The Law Office of Bryan Fagans attorneys are ready to assist you in this often joyful process. When adopting a child in Texas, the first step is to terminate the parental rights of the biological parent or parent. Termination of parental rights can be voluntary, through the signing of a voluntary relinquishment, or involuntarily after a court hearing. Once the parental rights have been terminated, the court will look to social workers, criminal history of the prospective parents, and other factors affecting the best interest of the child to determine whether adoption is appropriate. Contact us for guidance through the exciting, but sometimes trying adoption process.

  1. Termination of Parental Rights
  2. Step-Parent Adoption
