Child Support

Both parents have a legal duty to provide financial support for their children. Statewide uniform guideline for determining child support is contained in the family code. The court has the authority to order either, or both, parents to pay to cover living and medical expense of the couple’s children. This is called child support.

Child support is very formulaic. Two primary factors determine the amount of child support: how much each parent earns, and how much time each parent spend with the child(ren). 

Often, parents needlessly pay an attorney to determine child support. Determining child support does not need the assistance of an attorney unless one, or both, parties income is in question.
