Mothers have a natural ability to care for and protect their children. They are selfless and only want the best for their families. When faced with family law disputes over issues such as divorce, child custody, visitation, child support, and relocation, a mother’s protective instinct will kick in, and can at times make it difficult to remain calm. With only their children in mind, a mother can easily feel overwhelmed when facing these issues.
Divorce can be a very stressful time in a mother’s life. Oftentimes this stress is increased by the uncertainty created when a divorce is filed. This sense of uncertainty is only emphasized when mothers begin to think about future finances, such as how the bills will be paid or who will pay for all the needs of the children. It can leave mothers feeling as though they will never regain the sense of normalcy they once had before the divorce proceedings.

In Texas, the amount of child support is typically determined by agreement between the parties or more often by the statutory guidelines in the Texas Family Code. It’s important to understand the child support calculations that determine the amount of child support your children are entitled to receive as support. A correct calculation ensures you receive a fair amount of support.
