Legal Guidance For Texas Child Support Agreements
At the Law Office of David A. Kazen, we understand that child support can be crucial to providing for your child’s well-being after a divorce or separation. Our compassionate legal team is here to help you navigate the complex legal system and ensure that your child’s best interests are protected.
How Courts Decide Child Support Agreements In Texas
In Texas, courts use guidelines set forth by state law to determine the amount of child support that a parent must pay. These guidelines take into account factors such as:
- The income of both parents
- The number of children involved
- Any special needs of the child.
The court may also consider other factors, such as the child’s medical expenses or educational needs.
The guidelines for child support in Texas are intended to be fair and equitable, and they apply to all cases unless there are special circumstances that justify a deviation from the standard guidelines.
Modification Of Child Support Agreements
Life happens, and sometimes your situation will change after a child support agreement is in place. In these cases, you may need to modify the agreement to meet the child’s needs better. We can help you through the steps for modifying your child support agreement.
Enforcement Of Child Support Agreements
If the parent responsible for paying child support fails to make the required payments, there are legal remedies available to enforce the agreement. These remedies may include wage garnishment, seizure of assets and even imprisonment in extreme cases. Our firm can help you understand your options for enforcing a child support agreement and protecting your child’s financial well-being.
