Our knowledge and experience in the area of family law will help you get the results you want while maintaining the integrity and honesty our firm is known for.
Texas Child Support Guidelines
Child support is necessary for the financial stability of your child. Texas law has a set of “guidelines” that help determine the amount of child support allotted per month. We’ll help you maneuver through the guidelines to determine a rough estimate for what you must pay or what you will be owed. We will help you pay or receive a fair amount of child support that keeps the best interest of your child first.
Child Support For Special Circumstances
No child support case is clear cut, but sometimes families have special circumstances that must be taken into consideration during child support cases. For example, a child with medical expenses will need to be covered by health insurance in addition to the financial support covering the basic needs of the child. Adult children requiring “substantial care and personal supervision” beyond the age of 18 have a right to child support indefinitely. Additionally, if you have not been receiving child support already determined by the court, we can help you receive the retroactive child support that is rightfully yours.
Modification and Enforcement of Child Support Agreements
When child support agreements are made during the divorce process, it is impossible to determine what financial changes could affect you or the other parent in the future. If you or the other parent face changes in employment, medical bills or other financial stressors that make it impossible to fulfill the agreed-upon child support amount, a modification is necessary.
In other instances, the other parent may ignore or disregard the child support agreement. In these cases, an enforcement order is necessary in order to obligate the other parent to pay child support. A stubborn ex-partner can be difficult to work with and very emotionally straining. We will work hard to make sure the issue is resolved quickly while keeping your best interests in mind.
