Protect Your Children’s Financial Future
Child support helps make sure that a child will be able to live comfortably even though his or her parents do not live together. To make sure that your child is financially protected, call the Houston, Texas, law firm of Currier & Martin. Our attorneys have helped hundreds of parents create and enforce child support plans. Whether you are the custodial or noncustodial parent, we will help you with experienced advice and tenacious advocacy.
What Is Child Support Used For?
Texas law states that child support is intended to help the custodial parent pay for basic necessities like food and shelter, along with important potential expenses like:
- Medical care
- School expenses, such as private school tuition
- Extracurricular activities
The purpose of child support is to put children in the financial position they would be in if they lived under the same roof as both parents. To determine how much the noncustodial parent should pay, the court uses a formula that involves a mix of factors, like a parent’s income and the child’s financial needs.
Negotiating a Fair Agreement
Though we are always prepared to take your case to trial, most child support disputes get settled out of court. We have negotiated hundreds of child support agreements both parents can accept. This will reduce your legal costs and leave you with a child support plan that will let your children live in financial comfort for years to come.
Sometimes, a life change like a job loss or illness affects the parent’s ability to pay for the child’s financial needs. Our lawyers represent parents in child support modification disputes, as well as enforcement actions.
