Child support is for the benefit of the child and the noncustodial parent will pay the amount ordered by the court to the custodial parent. The state disbursement unit in San Antonio handles all of these payments and keeps an accurate record of child support payments.

Why Choose Us for Child Support Law?
If a child is involved in a divorce, the issue of child support is also a topic for discussion between the parties. If the parents of a child have never been married but are wanting to have a formal set of rules concerning support, a lawsuit will need to be filed to establish certain rights and obligations.
Child support is set based on a percentage of income and a formula is used to calculate the monthly amount owed. Several factors are involved and relevant to this calculation. The judge will ultimately issue an order concerning this aspect of the lawsuit, just like any other issues. The Texas Attorney General is also involved in some child support cases.
After an order has been rendered by the Judge, the parties at some time may wish to modify the amount. Certain cases are appropriate for modification. If a person who is ordered to pay does not pay, the court can enforce a prior order on a motion from a party or the Texas Attorney General. Just because a person ordered to pay support changes jobs does not mean the amount owed will automatically change.
