Child Support Archives

Fewer than half of single parents receive child support

According to recently released Census Bureau data, only 43.5 percent of parents with physical custody of their children receive financial support from the other parent. That leaves many parents in Texas and across the nation with serious financial strain, on top of taking care of the bulk of child care duties. For those who are struggling to make ends meet, collecting unpaid child support is a priority.

How to choose the right child support lawyer for your needs

For some Texas residents, collecting money from a former spouse to cover the costs of raising one or more children can be a struggle. In some cases, these matters go to court, which requires hiring an attorney to pursue a child support case. Because these issues often occur years after a divorce or with parties that were never married, Texas residents may be uncertain how to find the right attorney to handle their child support case.

During the course of a Texas divorce, many parents struggle over issues related to the care, custody and support of shared children. When it comes to child support, it is not uncommon for the parent who is tasked with making those payments to feel as though the amount is too high. What is less common is for that parent to take deliberate steps to avoid paying the proper amount of child support. One state is currently struggling with an unusual issue related to the circumvention of child support.

Child support and custody issues important to many Texas parents

Divorce is rarely easy. When children are involved, matters tend to become more complicated and highly emotional for parents and kids alike. Texas parents who divorce typically want what is best for their children, but when child support and custody issues arise, peaceable resolutions sometimes seem out-of-reach.

Vasectomy creates unusual child support case

Not all child support cases follow the predictable lines of a mother and father struggling over the financial needs of a shared child. In some cases, the matter is more complicated, as demonstrated in a recent child support case that has made headlines in Texas and across the nation. The case centers on one man's financial liability for the child of another.

Man ordered to pay child support for another's child

Many Texas readers may be following an unusual case in which a man has been ordered by a judge to make back child support payments for a child who is not his.

After having fought for years, the man at the center of this case now finds himself having to make the payments or risk punitive measures by the state.

Facebook can help parents seeking child support

When a Texas marriage ends in divorce, parents often struggle over the appropriate level of child support. It is not uncommon for the non-custodial parent to feel as if he or she is being asked to contribute an unfair amount for the care of a shared child or children. On the other hand, custodial parents often feel that a higher level of child support is required to ensure that the children are well cared for. In such cases, the matter often goes before a court of law.

Avoiding scams related to child support collection

Many Texas parents are unable to effectively communicate with each other concerning the needs of their shared children. In such cases, collecting child support payments is often a chore, and can lead to a great deal of stress on both sides. Some parents turn to collection companies to assist them in this process, but in doing so, make themselves vulnerable to a range of scams.
