What is child support in Texas?
In the state of Texas, if one parent has full custody of a child, they are entitled to receive child support payments from the other parent to ensure the child’s needs are fully being met.
“What is full custody in Texas?” Full custody implies that one parent is the “sole managing conservator,” meaning they are given full responsibility for making decisions on the child’s behalf and can use the money how they see fit (as long as the child is not being neglected). The other parent is required to pay a set amount of child support determined by the court either bi-weekly or monthly.
Child support payments are meant to cover a child’s basic expenses including:
- Medical care
- Dental care
In Texas, the amount of child support is determined as a percentage of your net monthly resources including money made through your normal income, bonuses, or other business incomes. However, if you and your former spouse cannot come to an agreeable solution, you may need an attorney to step in and help you determine what you or your spouse will be required to pay for child support, depending on who is the sole managing conservator.
“Javier Guzman was always diligent in his representation, fought for what I wanted, and always took the time to fully explain any questions or concerns that I had during the process.”
What can a child support lawyer do?
Hiring an experienced child support attorney can help you to handle any and all complicated documents and processes that come with a child support case. Child support payments can be difficult to navigate, especially if there are special circumstances at play. For example, if the non-custodial parent loses their job and will not be able to pay for child support, you may need to make modifications to your initial agreement. Your attorney can also review any negotiations and payment orders, saving you time and effort and ensuring fairness and precision.
You should not enter a child support case alone. Regardless of whether your former spouse has an attorney or not, you should always seek legal representation in these situations. It can be very easy for lawyers to misrepresent the situation and prevent you from getting the amount of child support that you deserve, or from paying a fair amount of child support. Hiring a competent attorney can give you peace of mind in these tough times.
