Child Support Lawyer

South Texas Family Law Attorney Helping Protect Your Rights

In Texas, the custodial parent in a divorce is entitled to receive child support payments from the noncustodial parent, based on a formula developed by the state. The calculation includes both parents’ income, but a noncustodial parent has support responsibilities regardless of whether the custodial parent can provide all the necessary financial support for the child. The parents have some latitude with respect to how much gets paid, what is included in the payment and how long the payments last. To protect your interests, you want an experienced divorce lawyer who can help you understand your rights and options.

At the Law Office of Mark B. Jones, in Angleton, we have protected the rights of men and women in south Texas for more than 18 years. We know from experience that every divorce is different, and that every client has a unique set of circumstances and goals. We will listen carefully to learn your objectives and will adapt our approach to help you get the outcome you want. We can take an aggressive approach, seeking to use the power of the courts to protect and enforce your rights. Attorney Jones is also a certified family law mediator and can help you work cooperatively with your ex-spouse to find mutually beneficial solutions.

Our Child Support Practice

We will carefully review all proposed child support orders for compliance with Texas guidelines and to ensure that all relevant income is included in the calculation, including income derived from self-employment, seasonal employment and commissions. We know how to locate all sources of income and make certain that you are only responsible for your fair share of the financial support of your children. We can also assist you with requests to deviate from the state-established formula should your circumstances or your children’s needs require a different agreement.

We work with men and women at any stage of a child support dispute, whether you have just filed for divorce and need a temporary order in place, or your divorce is final and you need assistance in proceedings to modify or enforce a final decree.
