Texas law includes specific guidelines that determine the level of child support a parent will be required to pay. The guidelines consider the income levels of both parents, the number of children requiring support and other factors. These guidelines can be extremely complex for people who are not familiar with them, and the assistance of an experienced attorney can be invaluable.
At the law firm of Higdon, Hardy and Zuflacht, L.L.P., we have extensive experience representing parents in a broad range of complex Texas child support matters. Our experience includes matters ranging from calculations based on straightforward salary and bonus income to those involving high-wage earners with complex income packages.
Thorough Preparation And Skillful Representation
One of the most important aspects of obtaining an accurate child support order is gaining a complete understanding of each parent's income. Both parents are required to disclose gross income from all sources, including salary, bonuses, commissions, income properties and other sources. We make every effort to ensure that all income has been disclosed before support is calculated.
We are familiar with the statutory deductions that are allowed in the calculation of child support, and we work diligently to see that all applicable deductions are applied to your gross income. We will carefully calculate the child support obligation and prepare the documentation for submission to the court. We promptly address any disputes that arise over the calculations and seek a swift and favorable outcome for our client.
Texas Child Support Enforcement And Modification Actions
We also represent clients on both sides of enforcement and modification actions. If your former spouse is not making payments as ordered by the court, we can help you take the necessary steps to petition the court to ensure compliance. If there has been a substantial change in circumstances since your child support order was established, we will help you seek a modification of the order to better reflect the current situation.
