Houston Child Support Arrangements

Information provided by a Houston Divorce Lawyer

Photo of Child Support DocumentWhen it comes to Texas divorces, it often comes down to money, including the amount of child support that one spouse should pay another. As Houston divorce lawyers, we always want what is in the best interest of the child and we want to make sure that the child support arrangements meet that goal.

When we discuss child support with you, we discuss payment arrangements, a reasonable amount of child support, how to guarantee that you receive payments, and how you can adjust the child support amount when circumstances change. We have to look at a client’s net resources, which includes a salary, interest payments, royalties, other income sources, and more, and this can become complicated. We also find that is usually easiest if child support payments are automatically withheld from the paying spouse to avoid complications. When we refer to circumstances changing it could be from either parent, such as a job change, remarriage, cost of living increases, and more.
