Establishing and Enforcing Child Support in Texas
The amount of child support is one of the most controversial issues in a divorce or child custody case. Most parents want the needs of their children to be met. However, parents also do not want to be held responsible for paying more than their fair share of a child's expenses.

Texas Child Support Guidelines
In most divorces involving children, some amount of child support is ordered. An experienced child support lawyer can help you navigate the child support guidelines in Texas to ensure that the correct amount of support is paid.
Support payments are intended to provide for your child's needs. If you are unable to pay due to circumstances, it is essential to file for a modification. If a non-custodial parent refuses to pay, there are child support enforcement actions that may be initiated. In both support situations and in child custody and visitation matters, our family law attorneys are available to help.
