What Should I Know About Child Support In Texas?

Child support usually applies during and after a divorce. If one of the parents gets custody of the child, the other one may be required by law to pay financial support for the child's upbringing. The amount is usually calculated as a percentage of the parent's income.

Without the right legal representation, this amount can be quite high. A child support lawyer ensures that your needs are met, as well as your child's.

When you consult with the Law Office of Enacio B. Barretto, I will walk you through the major areas surrounding child support.

Time Is Of The Essence

If you find that you cannot keep up with your child support payments, you need to act before things go awry. Even when you file for bankruptcy, you are still required to pay the amount in arrears. As soon as you become unemployed or you lose a source of income, you need to go to court.

Amounts Can Vary

A major factor that can cause your child support payment to be lowered is if you have other kids. When you have another child, you need to speak to the judge. You should do this through a lawyer. That way, your plea will be presented in a professional manner.
