Fort Worth Child Support Attorneys

Though the child support Order entered by the Court is legally binding, that is not to say that the Order will be properly complied with or representative of your circumstances years after the Order was signed. The provision related to the support of your children is generally subject to modification until the children graduate form high school. The child-support guidelines set forth in the Texas Family Code generally provide that the non-custodial parents should pay at least 20% of their net resources to the custodial parent for the support of one child, 25% for two children, and 30% for three children to help support their children.

At The Maynard Law Firm, PLLC, our Fort Worth child support attorneys can pursue any course of legal action necessary to enforce your child support Order or to modify that Order so that it will be more representative of your current financial circumstances. We know how critical the amount of support is to the ongoing care of your child, and we can help you make an informed legal decision about what will be in your child’s best interests moving forward. That being said, we can help you understand the implications of all your choices so you can make informed decisions about your child’s future.

Enforcing Child Support

Custodial parents can take legal action to enforce every aspect of the child support Order if the child support Obligor fails to provide the financial support he or she is supposed to pay under the terms of the Order. As difficult as it may be for you to take the child support Obligor to court, there is a good chance this may be the only way for you get the child support you are entitled to receive. That being said, we can help you take legal action to pursue every payment the child support Obligor has failed to provide.

Modifying Child Support

While the child support Order was likely to have been representative of the non-custodial parent’s financial circumstances at the time of the Order was signed, there is a good chance that the non-custodial parent’s financial standing has changed since that time. Bearing that in mind, the child support amount may need to be periodically modified to make it more representative of the non-custodial parent’s current resources and/or the best interest of the child.
