Texas family courts follow a child support formula created by the Texas Legislature that factors in the income and expenses of both parents and generally awards support to the parent who has primary custody of the minor children. A number of factors may provide good cause to deviate from this formula, however.
At the San Marcos law firm of M. J. Hill & Associates, PLLC, we provide comprehensive and personable legal guidance regarding the establishment of child support, as well as other family law, divorce and parent-child relationship issues. Whether you are seeking child support, or you are protecting yourself from paying more than your obligation, we provide knowledgeable legal counsel designed to reach a fair resolution efficiently and cost-effectively.

How To Change A Child Support Order In Texas
Financial situations change rapidly. Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for a modification of your child support payment. Never just stop making your child support payments. This can cause severe civil and possible criminal consequences that may result in the Office of the Attorney General getting involved. We can help you lower your child support obligation or obtain an order to increase the amount you receive depending on the facts and circumstances of your case.
If you are presented with a situation where the other conservator is not paying support or not following the child support order, that order for support may be enforced by contempt, wage garnishment or other means. Depending on the unique circumstances of your case, our experienced San Marcos enforcement lawyer can determine which remedy is likely to be applied and which is best for your situation.
