In a typical child custody arrangement, one parent pays child support to the other parent, and the amount of the child support is based upon our Texas Family Code’s statutory guidelines for the calculation of child support.
The amount reflected in a court order may be the amount that is in place for several years, so it is important that you receive competent representation in addressing any child support matter. There are various rules regarding child support matters including ceilings on the amount, what resources can be included in calculating a person’s “net resources” which is the amount utilized to determine “guideline” child support, circumstances necessitating a need for “non-guideline” child support, and more.
The lawyers at Briner Family Law Group, are highly experienced at evaluating all facts relating to the calculation of support, obtaining retroactive child support, establishing paternity for obtaining child support, situations giving rise to a case for non-guideline child support, and in both pursuing and defending against a request for non-guideline child support.
