Top Family Law Attorneys in North Dallas

If you are facing an enforcement action or are considering the option of filing one, our Family Law attorneys at Hanshaw Kennedy Hafen are here to help you navigate through the delicate situation.

If a parent is failing to pay for child support, pay for medical care, the law provides that the nonpaying parent could have those funds garnished from his or her pay; tax refunds could be withheld from the nonpaying parent to cover those payments in whole or in part; the court can put a lien against your property; you could lose professional licenses, drivers’ licenses, fishing licenses, etc.; and in addition, failure to pay child support could subject you to a finding of contempt of court including fines and even jail time.

We understand the challenging aspects of enforcement situations and have vast experience to ensure results regardless of what side of an enforcement action you might be on.

Need to enforce a visitation or child support infraction? We can meet with you virtually to help.

Is your ex failing to pay their child support? We can help.

The Partner You Can Trust

Do NOT attempt self-help remedies. If your ex is not following the orders in any way, you should have clean hands and continue to follow the orders. You can be held in contempt as well if you fail to follow the orders because your ex is not following the orders. One example is that you should NOT withhold visitation just because your ex is not paying support; and you should NOT withhold support just because your ex is not allowing visitation. You have legal remedies and should speak to a family law attorney about them.

If you cannot make child support payments, contact an attorney about your options. It is best to do this when you still have options, before you have missed payments and before a motion to enforce is filed against you.

Hannah Stroud and Sarah Rose did an amazing job tackling a last minute appeal brief. They were both very professional, prompt and knowledgeable. I appreciate the time and work that they put into this case. I would highly recommend this law firm and using Hannah and Sarah to others.

Hannah Stroud has been my lawyer for about eight years. She is extremely professional, helpful, caring and honest. I left another lawyer on advice to be represented by Hannah. I don’t regret a single minute of our relationship.

-Michelle K.

Sarah helped me with a difficult case that required a lot of fact gathering and having to distinguish between actual facts and allegations. Sarah was patient, thorough, and truly listened to my case and the information I provided. Sarah went to great lengths to assist me in gathering information needed and finding resources to help my case. We ended up settling out of court, but Sarah continued to go to bat for me and my case helping me get an outcome that was positive and feasible. I highly recommend Sarah, as she treats her clients with respect and dignity. She is a true advocate for her clients and goes above and beyond to help them receive the best outcome possible.


Hannah was so patient, kind and understanding as my attorney. She was available whenever I had questions and advocated hard for my best interest. Definitely recommend!
