Courts expect both parents to meet the financial needs of their children. While Texas has standard guidelines for determining who pays support and how much, having an experienced attorney on your side will help you to ensure that your child has the financial stability he or she needs to prepare for the future.
Initial child support amounts are determined during the divorce or paternity process and may need to be modified down the road when circumstances change. This may be a result of the changing needs of the child, an increase or decrease in the parents’ income or expenses, the birth of another child or changes in employment. At Turton & Pinkerton, we will review the current child support orders as well as the material changes that may impact support payments going forward and provide you with the expertise needed to argue your case effectively.
If you live in the Dallas, Collin, Denton, or surrounding areas in North Texas and you need assistance with a child support matter, contact the office of Turton & Pinkerton, PLLC.
