Child Support Is About Securing Finances To Protect Your Children’s Needs
Divorcing couples who have children must rebuild a workable financial foundation for the future care and upbringing of those children. Part of this process includes crafting a child support agreement. Not much creativity is involved in this process, as child support guidelines are determined on a mathematical formula based on income and number of children.
However, child support is a crucial element of the divorce process for individuals with children, and must be handled with diligence and care. At Law Thompson, P.C., we are committed to making sure children of divorcing couples have the resources and support they need to ensure a stable, productive future.
Creating Practical Financial Scaffolding For Your Children
In Texas, the parent who does not have primary physical custody is the one who will pay for child support. As stated above, child support is determined by a mathematical formula, and so there is not much flexibility around the process. However, a child support agreement can be modified at a later date under certain circumstances, including:
- A job loss
- A significant raise
- Increased needs of the child
At Law Thompson, P.C., our attorney and certified family law specialist, Travis Thompson, has more than 28 years of experience helping Texas families create workable child support arrangements and modifications. Email us or call us at 281-369-8665 to learn more about the child custody process and what it might mean in your situation.
Serving Nontraditional Families
Married couples seeking a divorce are not the only people who need child support guidance. Unmarried couples with children face similar challenges when they go their separate ways. Both parents are responsible for the security and well-being of their children, whether they were ever married or not. In some cases, a mother may need to establish the legal paternity of her child before she can seek child support payments from the father. Our experienced Houston child support lawyers can help married and unmarried parents alike forge reasonable child support agreements. We work with you step by step until we’ve established a firm foundation for the future of your children.
