Texas Courts presume that one parent (the obligor) will pay child support to the other parent (the oblige). With certain guidelines legally in place as to how much child support will be paid and who is to provide medical and dental insurance for the children, parents might be tricked in to believing that their attorneys will not be able to advocate for non-standard results. This is not true. Child and medical support issues, like all involving children, are fact-driven issues requiring legal insight and input.
A growing issue in family law is the inter-play between possession time and child support. With equal possession time growing as a movement in some courts, as well as becoming part of many parenting agreements, the issue of child support is no longer as simple as it once was. Who should pay what to who when the parties have equal time with the children is not a question simply answered.
Even without an equal possession schedule, the issue of child support still requires reliable legal advice. With experience in a variety of child support situations, including circumstances where the primary parent’s income vastly exceeds the non-primary parent’s income or where the obligated party’s income is more difficult to determine because they are self-employed, the attorneys at Hanshaw Kennedy Hafen are ready to answer your child support questions.
