Parents disappointed by lack of child custody enforcement

Texas residents may assume that, once a court order is in place, the order must be followed or a person can face criminal charges. While this is certainly what the laws state, many parents who have orders pertaining to child custody are frustrated that violations by the other parent are being ignored by law enforcement. Now, parents are speaking out and demanding justice. 

Though it is not uncommon for the parents of a mutual child to establish custody arrangements by way of a legally binding court order, some parents choose to disregard the order to serve their own selfish motives. Such actions equate to disregarding the fact that court orders are established to protect the best interest of any child involved. When appropriate, child custody orders allow a child to form a bonded relationship with both parents. 

Many Texas parents are growing frustrated because, even if they report that the other parent has violated the child custody order previously entered by a court of law, the other party is not prosecuted for the violations. Some parents even report that, despite a set schedule detailed in an order, the other parent limits contact with a child, sometimes not allowing any sort of contact. Parents who are denied legal rights may want to find out what the appropriate course of action may be.

If a parent is concerned that another party is in violation of a child custody order, he or she may become frustrated that authorities are ignoring the problem. One thing a parent can do is contact an experienced attorney. An attorney can help a parent bring a party who has violated a court order to justice for the sake of his or her relationship with his or her child.
