Texas law requires parents to help fund their minor children’s needs. If the parents no longer live together, the non-primary parent is typically required to pay an amount of support to the other parent for child support. The Texas Family Code sets forth specific guidelines which are used to determine the amount of child support a parent must pay. A parents income, amount paid for child’s health insurance, number of children involved, and whether there are any children from another relationship are all factored into determining “guideline child support.” If the amount you’re paying or receiving in child support does not conform to the guidelines you may be able to modify the amount of child support that is paid. An experienced San Antonio child support attorney can help.
“Helping to Resolve the Most Difficult Child Support Issues”
If you’re not being paid the amount of support that was ordered you can request the Court to ENFORCE the existing order. A person who fails to pay court ordered child support can be fined, jailed, and ordered to pay all attorney fees and costs which were necessary to enforce the court order.
