Experienced Lubbock, Texas Child Support Attorney

In Texas, child support orders are based on the financial circumstances of both parents. Guidelines followed by the court are based on annual income and initially consider a combined gross monthly income of $7,500.00. For spouses who earn more that this amount the question is will the court require additional child support payments? Courts often extend the guidelines to fit higher incomes, but there are other options. Creative child support solutions can be a better fit for you and your children.

At the Law Offices of Payne, Powell & Truitt Law Group, we take pride in our thorough understanding of Texas family law and our commitment to providing detailed answers and creative solutions to complex child support matters.

Working with an experienced attorney at the Law Offices of Payne, Powell & Truitt Law Group, we can help you develop and implement plans that meet the current and future needs of your children.

Child Support and Family Law

Child support is normally determined by which parent has primary custody of a child. Therefore, child support is a consequence of child custody. You may want to review the facts on the child custody page, because in most cases, you cannot receive child support unless you have legal custody of a child. The parent who the child does not primarily reside with usually pays child support. This payment is normally a monthly payment to the other parent for support of the child. Many times circumstances change that make the initial child support in a divorce decree or custody order too low, or too high, and changing the amount becomes necessary to bring the support within the guidelines established by Texas law. This does require going back to court in most cases.

These changes are very fact dependent, so a consultation with a family law attorney is a good idea to determine whether you are receiving (or paying) the correct amount of child support.

Some common problems people have with child support:

child support payments  Support payment is too high (paying parent makes less money now).
paying child support  Support payment is too low (paying parent makes more money now).
paying child support  Downward change in income for parent paying support.
Lubbock Child Custody  Support going to parent with whom child no longer resides.
not paying child support  Paying parent is self-employed, and not paying enough.
not paying child support  Parent obligated to pay is not paying.
child support collection  Support not in accordance with legal guidelines -Support collection does not terminate when child is eighteen.

We work hard to ensure that child support agreements are integrated into a broader plan for preserving the well-being of children that can include child support, child custody issues, visitation, alimony, college planning and property division. As a comprehensive family law firm, we are proud to offer cost-efficient solutions in all these matters. Call Us Today for a Consultation at 806-368-8712.
