Child Support In Texas
In Texas, child support is determined by a set of guidelines that takes into account the number of children, the income of the parents and other factors. Determining child support can be relatively simple when both parents are willingly cooperating with the legal process. However, investigative tactics may need to be employed if a parent is purposely trying to hide income to get out of paying support.
When circumstances warrant, either party may seek a modification of child support orders. The change in circumstances must be significant in order for the court to grant a modification. For instance, a job loss or significant increase or decrease in income may call for a change in legal orders.
Regardless your situation, our attorneys can protect your rights and the best interests of your children in any child support-related matter in Texas.
