Child Support Honored Among the Top Trial Lawyers in the Country

Dallas Child Support Attorneys

Child Support Laws in the State of Texas

At Hernandez & Baggett, PLLC, we find there are few issues in the area of divorce and custody that are more contentious than that of child support. Who is going to pay it? How much are they going to be paid? How is it going to be paid? It is not unusual for an agreement or settlement to fall apart because the parents cannot agree on the amount of child support that should be paid.

Let our Dallas child support attorneys be your guides through challenging issues. Call (214) 855-7771 or contact us online.

Types of Support Orders

It should be expected, except under rare circumstances, that some amount of child support is going to be paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent in every custody matter filed in the State of Texas.

In addition to the standard issue of child support that is common in every case, there are the additional issues of:

  • Supplemental child support
  • Retroactive child support
  • Medical child support

Whether you are the parent receiving child support or the parent required to pay child support, it is important that you understand your rights and the law as it pertains to your particular situation.

Texas Child Support Guidelines

In Texas there is what is known as “child support guidelines” which calculate the amount which typically should be paid based on the income of the noncustodial parent. However, in certain situations the Court could deem the guidelines to be inappropriate for a given case and award support much higher or much lower than the guidelines would otherwise suggest.
