HOW TO ENFORCE MY CHILD VISITATION IN TEXAS
File an Enforcement 

Visitation enforcement occurs when a judge forces a party to follow a child visitation order at the request of the other parent. There are many ways that the court can enforce child visitation. A party may request enforcement of their visitation when: 

  • That party is denied access to his or her children
  • The other parent refuses to communicate with the complaining party

The need for enforcement frequently arises in the following situations: 

  • When one parent attempts to change dates and times of visitation
  • When one parent frequently arrives late to visitation 
  • When one parent threatens to end the other parent’s visitation
  • When one parent assigns another person to pick up and drop off the child in violation of the order 
  • When one parent withholds visitation because the other parent is behind on child support
  • When one parent limits the other parent’s visitation for any reason not permitted by the child visitation order
  • When one parent changes his or her address without updating the other parent or the court
  • When one parent unilaterally alters the child’s schedule and expects the other parent to adhere to it
  • The custodial parent moves outside of a geographic restriction from the court

Remedies

  • Change the visitation plan
  • Increase his or her visitation time
  • Schedule additional visits
  • Hold the custodial parent in contempt of court 
  • Order the payment of attorney’s fees
  • Change the custody
