Child Support

Houston Child Support Lawyer

Protecting You & Your Child’s Rights

Texas law requires parents to support their children. This applies whether the parents are married, divorced, or living separately. At our family law firm, we work with clients to make sure that child support awards are appropriate and based on full disclosure. In some cases, no child support has to be paid. Clients can rest assured that we will make sure they are treated fairly in child support matters.

Texas Child Support Guidelines

Texas’ child support guidelines are the basis for calculating child support payments. However, if both parents agree on a different arrangement, that agreement takes precedence over the guidelines, but must be approved by the family court judge. In many cases, we can get your agreement finalized without approval by a judge. If there are unusual circumstances, such as a child with special needs, that is taken into account when determining the amount of support paid or received and the length of time child support is paid.

Representing Payors & Payees in Child Support Matters

If you are being sued for back child support, need to enforce a child support order, or are concerned about the paternity of a child you are being asked to support, the Law Offices of Frank E. Mann, P.C. can help.

Among the questions we can answer are:

  • How is child support calculated in Texas?
