Modifications & Enforcement

Collin County Modifications and Enforcements

Changing a court order is not as simple as completing paperwork and entering it into the court, which is why it’s important to ensure your divorce settlement is finalized to meet your needs before signing it. With that said, the rigidity of the modification system doesn’t mean the court is insensitive to necessary changes that sometimes develop. 

Parents have options in the form of modification petitions and enforcement orders. 

Modifications are changes to a child’s support or custody order. Specific material changes, which are permanent factors that represent a situational change, must be met to justify the modification. 

Common material changes include: 

  • Job Loss
  • Remarriage
  • Disability
  • Illness
  • Jail Sentences
  • Relocation

A family law attorney can review the details of your case to ensure you have material changes that rise to the level required to file a modification. At Cross Family Law, PLLC, our attorneys can help you resolve your child custody or support issues and work to reach your modification goals. 


Call (972) 675-7792 to schedule a consultation with our Collin County modification and enforcement lawyer at Cross Family Law, PLLC. We can guide you through your options and assist you in court.


Enforcement: Parents can file a petition for enforcement to ask the court for help compelling payment in a child support order or compliance in a custody order. The petitioning party will need to complete a form letting the court know how the other party is in violation of their court order. The petitioner must also specify the relief they are requesting. 

Enforcements can end in wage garnishments, liens, or contempt of court charges. Whether you have been served with an enforcement petition or need to file a petition, working with an experienced attorney to ensure your interests are met is your best course of action.
