Speak To ASan Antonio Child Support Lawyer About Texas Guidelines
In Texas, as in other states, the amount a parent will pay is largely defined by the Texas guidelines and the amount of time the child is in each parent's custody.
Judges do have some discretion to change the amount of the support order, however, especially when parents have considerable financial assets or when the child has significant needs. It is the role of your San Antonio child support lawyer to document for the court why there should be a deviation in the court ordered support. Texas Guidelines

The non custodial's financial responsibility is usually a monthly payment to the custodial parent for the benefit of the child. Payments shouldn't be made directly from one parent to another, but through the Texas Attorney General's Office, and may also be made by employer wage deduction. The amount of Support is calculated pursuant to Texas Law, which is basically a formula that figures support based on the incomes of the parties and other factors. Factors That Determine Amount

It is not uncommon for parents to find that they need to request a modification of an existing court order at some point. Family circumstances change, income increases (or decreases)—these are valid reasons to ask a family court judge to review and modify your court order. Modification Attorney
Parents sometimes negotiate agreements privately. While I always look for ways to help parents arrive at agreements on their own, I urge clients not to bypass the court in these matters.
A San Antonio Child Support Lawyer Can File For Order To Withhold
Sec. 154.007. ORDER TO WITHHOLD FROM INCOME. (a) In a proceeding in which periodic payments are ordered, modified, or enforced, the court or Title IV-D agency shall order that income be withheld from the disposable earnings of the obligor as provided by Chapter 158. Wage Garnishment
Can File To Terminate support
Unless the circumstances of the child manifestly dictate otherwise and the court specifically so provides, the obligation of a parent to make payments shall terminate when the child:
Sec. 154.006. TERMINATION OF DUTY OF SUPPORT. (a) Unless otherwise agreed in writing or expressly provided in the order or as provided by Subsection (b), the order terminates on:
- the marriage of the child;
- the removal of the child’s disabilities for general purposes
The stakes are simply too high. Allow me, a San Antonio child support attorney to bring your case forward. This will protect you should the other parent later claim that you did not pay.
