Child Support


If you and your spouse have children but are no longer together, your best course of action for your legal rights is to seek the counsel of an experienced child support and spousal support lawyer in Smith County.

How Child Support Works

Child support issues are often among the leading areas of concern during or following a divorce case. In the State of Texas, courts use a formula that calculates a percentage of the obligor parent’s net income in determining the appropriate child support amount to be awarded to the parent with custody.

There can be several variations of how child support is calculated depending on whether the obligor parent is self-employed, a salaried employee, or whether the parents share equal time with the children. With an experienced, knowledgeable child support attorney in Tyler, TX on your side, you can ensure the appropriate amount of child support for your needs is established from the beginning.
