Child Support

Houston Child Support Attorney

Texas law requires the courts to order child support in an amount that is in accordance with certain guidelines as set forth in the Texas Family Code. This permits children to be cared for in a way similar to the lifestyle they were accustomed to prior to the separation of the parents.

One way the law works to ensure that children can live as close to the same life as before a divorce is through child support payments.

For parents, it is also important that they receive or pay a fair amount in child support so they are not financially burdened.

At the Law Office of Dan Kirby in Houston, we can walk you through the child support determination process here in Texas. An experienced lawyer like Dan Kirby can let you know what to expect to owe or receive.

If there are reasons to deviate from the state formula, we can gather the proper evidence to help strengthen your claim.

Ensuring a financially healthy home for children in the wake of a divorce or a suit affecting the parent-child relationship is an extremely important consideration. To those ends, child support is structured in the interests of families to preserve financial health. Child support is determined based on a calculation in Texas. The factors listed need attention.

  • The gross and net income of both parents
  • Business income and deductions of the parents
  • Day care costs paid by either parent
  • The number of children to be supported
  • Health and dental insurance will be handled as additional child support.

An Understanding That Circumstances Change

Of course, your child’s needs at age 4 will be different than age 16. We are familiar with modifying divorce orders when necessary to better serve everyone’s interests. Many times these can be negotiated outside of court. If you are receiving too little child support or paying too much and your ex-spouse is contesting your request, we can take your case before a judge.
