Dedicated Child Support Attorneys in The Woodlands
While divorce is rarely an easy process, sometimes it is necessary for two adults to separate. If there are children involved in the marriage, parents have understandable worries about how it will affect their children. Getting a divorce should not mean jeopardizing your child’s well-being or your relationship with them as a parent. When you hire Kemp Law Firm, you can be certain they will work hard to preserve the parent-child relationship while protecting the rights and interests of their clients.
A Texas Family Law Firm Who Knows Family Law
Kemp Law Firm is a family itself - a father, son and wife with over 50 years of experience in the legal field. Our attorneys understand that raising children is a lifetime commitment and work towards ensuring that such a commitment is honored. Under Texas law, both parents are legally accountable for costs associated with child care after child custody is determined. The Texas Family Code has guidelines which base child support payments on monthly net resources and deducting certain taxes and dues. The courts also consider the number of children in the marriage, taking into account children from a previous marriage if applicable. Child support payments are understood to cover expenses responsible for maintaining a child’s well-being, including:
- Educational expenses
While state law provides formulas to help determine child support payments, there are factors which can later affect the original determination. Physical illness or losing a job can make child support payments more difficult, if not impossible. Our child support attorneys in The Woodlands can prepare requests for modification if these unfortunate events come to pass. Kemp Law Firm’s services in your case go beyond the divorce process in court; our individual attention to our clients has resulted in long-standing relationships throughout The Woodlands and Texas.
Texas courts take the obligation of child support payments very seriously. If a parent is in arrears with their child support, the state takes action against that parent and may garnish wages when the noncustodial parent defaults on their child support obligations.
