child support cases

At Vargas Guerra LLP, we recognize the essential role that child support plays in ensuring the well-being and financial stability of children following a divorce or separation. Navigating the legal aspects of establishing, modifying, or enforcing child support can be complex, but our experienced family law team is committed to providing clear guidance and robust advocacy to protect your rights and ensure the best possible outcome for your children.

Understanding Child Support in Texas

Child support in Texas is designed to provide for the basic needs of children, including housing, food, clothing, and education. The amount of support is typically determined by state guidelines, which consider the income of the non-custodial parent and the number of children requiring support. However, unique family circumstances can influence these calculations, making it crucial to have knowledgeable legal representation to ensure fairness and adequacy of support.

Establishing Child Support

The process begins with accurately determining the income of both parents and applying state guidelines to establish a fair amount of support. Our team meticulously gathers and presents financial evidence, advocating for an arrangement that reflects the true needs of your children and the financial capabilities of both parents.

Modifying Child Support

Changes in income, employment, the needs of the child, or other significant life events may necessitate modifications to existing child support orders. We can assist you in petitioning the court for a modification, providing evidence to support the requested change and advocating for an updated order that reflects current circumstances.

Enforcing Child Support

When child support payments are not made as ordered, it can place undue strain on the custodial parent and jeopardize the well-being of the child. Our attorneys are adept at navigating the enforcement process, utilizing legal measures to ensure compliance with support orders and seeking remedies for missed payments.
