Houston Lawyer Handling Attorney General’s Office Cases

Handling Cases When the Attorney General Intervenes

If the Attorney General’s office is involved in a case, one of the parties should have their own attorney. The Attorney General’s office represents the State of Texas and not you.

At the Law Offices of Frank E. Mann, P.C., we have represented numerous clients in family law cases involving the Attorney General’s Office. We look forward to hearing your story and discussing your situation with you.

Attorney General’s Services for Child Support Disputes

If the other parent of your child is failing to pay you child support, you may seek services from the Attorney General’s Office. The Attorney General can file their own action or intervene in your pending case. The AG is automatically involved in support cases involving parents who receive public benefits.

Keep in mind that the Attorney General represents the State of Texas in child support lawsuits. Generally, the AG will not take a position on custody or visitation disputes between the parties. Instead, they focus on making sure that children are receiving the financial support they need and deserve from their parents.

Because the AG represents the State of Texas, you are not their client – so you will be considered a respondent in the Attorney General’s lawsuit against the other parent. As such, you will want your own attorney to represent you and look out for your best interests. That is where our firm comes in.

Domestic Violence & Child Support

Domestic violence is not always physical – it can also involve sexual violence, threats, emotional abuse, or exerting control over someone’s finances. Quite often, we see one parent threatening to withhold child support payments if the other parent leaves the relationship or does not act according to the abusive party’s wishes.

In these situations, the parent being threatened or left without support can apply for services from the Attorney General’s Office. The AG can step in and take action against the abusive parent to make sure they pay child support and put a stop to the abuse.
