Need Help With Your Child Support (210) 247-3173
After going through a divorce, one parent is likely to end up with primary custody of a child or children. In normal circumstances, the non-custodial parent will be responsible for paying child support to help pay for the needs and education of the child, and the custodial parent is usually not required to account for the child support he or she receives. Things such as voluntary gifts, clothes or transportation are not considered as child support. If you need assistance in any family law legal matter involving child support, knowledgeable legal help is available if you call (210) 247-3173.
Child support in the state of Texas will ensure that the non-custodial parent contributes to their responsibilities by enforcing child support payments.
The law will enforce payments by reporting the non-custodial parent to the credit bureau, having their license suspended, thrown in jail, etc. If a non-custodial parent refuses to pay child support, then the custodial parent can file suit and have the law enforce those actions.
Child Support Wage Garnishments
Unlike most states in America, Texas law requires all child support payments to be garnished from the non-custodial parent’s paycheck. Garnishment of the non-custodial parent’s earnings will guarantee that all payments are being made.
