Dallas Child Support Attorney

Texas child support lawyer

Highland Park Lawyer Helping Texas Parents Fight for Fair Child Support Orders

Arranging an equitable child support order can be one of the most difficult matters involved in a divorce. When parents receive child support payments as they need them, they will have a greater ability to raise their child successfully. With the help of the Dallas child support attorney at Clark Law Group, you can fight for fair child support with your parental partner and ensure that the child has the best opportunity to succeed. Keep in mind that working out functional child support terms up front is much easier than modifying them later on.

How Do Child Support Payments Work in Texas?

Once the parents of a child no longer live together, one can request child support payments from the other. An exception to this would be if the parents were enrolled in a public assistance program, in which case the County will determine if a payment needs to be made. These payments will last until the child reaches the age of 18 unless special arrangements are made, such as payments lasting until their graduation or if they suffer from a disability. Our child support attorney in Dallas can help assist you in getting the child support you need.

Child support payments can be ended in cases where the child:

  • Gets married
  • Enlists in the military
  • Becomes legally emancipated

Calculating Child Support

Courts in Texas calculate child support payments by calculating a parent's net income after social security taxes, Federal income tax, union dues, and any health insurance or medical expenses the parent pays for the children. This figure—up to $8,550.00—is then multiplied by a factor between 20% and 40% depending on the number of children. This can be increased as well if a parent can prove the child needs more support than the calculation would grant.

The process for establishing appropriate amounts is complicated and can be confusing. Get the help of our team to ensure your child support payments are fair and sufficient for the child's needs.
