Community Supervision Unit (CSU)

{Tarrant County Courthouse}

The Community Supervision Unit (CSU) provides supervision for those found in contempt of court for their failure to pay child support pursuant to section 157 Subchapter E of the Texas Family Code.  Similar provisions also exist in this section for persons in contempt for failure to allow possession of and access to a child for the purpose of visitation.  The primary goal of this unit is to see that these persons remain in compliance with the orders of the court and when they are not, to refer the case back to court for appropriate action.  CSU is funded largely by the collection of probation fees and provides the Family District Courts with an effective statutory method of both monitoring/enforcing the court orders and is a cost saving alternative to incarceration.
