When it comes to ending a relationship or a marriage, child support issues arise. With the help of our professional child custody attorney at Hixson Law Firm, we can work with you to get through these legal situations easily. Unless there is a prenuptial agreement intact, child support proceedings can take a long time. However, with the help of our experienced legal team, we can ensure that your legal rights are protected every step of the way.
How We Can Help
Our child support attorney will take time to look through your financial resorts and determine what each person contributed to the relationship or marriage. The more prepared you are, and the more documentation you bring, the more likely the process will go faster. When calculating these child support payments in Texas, the court must first determine the monthly net resources of the parent paying child support.
This will include everything minus federal income and state income tax, union dues, social security taxes, and health insurance expenses for the child or children. For monthly net resources less than $7,000, a percentage of the proceedings will be given, such as 20% to one child, 25% for two children, etc. This money can be used for the needs of the child, the cost of their insurance, schooling, etc. This child support order lasts until the child’s 18th birthday. If this is in the middle of their school year, it continues until the end of the school year. Our legal team can also help with child support modification as well.
