Child Support

Dallas, Texas Child Support Lawyers

In Texas, the level of child support is determined by statutory guidelines, adjusted for certain factors and expenses. In general, the non-custodial parent will be obliged to pay child support to the parent with primary custody, though this is not always the case.

Gagnon, Peacock & Vereeke, P.C. are family law attorneys with extensive experience in all aspects of child support, including:

  • Determination of the required child support level
  • Modifications in child support
  • Enforcement of child support orders
  • Paternity and child support

We believe that everyone entitled to child support should receive all they deserve. We also believe that people obligated to pay child support should not have to pay more than the law requires.

Child Support Can Change Over Time

Because a child support order is based on the incomes of the parents, the required level of support can change when incomes change. A salary increase, a layoff, or period of disability can provide sufficient grounds to seek a modification in a child support order. In the same way, a child’s health care or educational needs may prompt the court to issue a modification.

In a free consultation, an attorney at our firm can review your situation and determine whether you should seek a child support modification. If the answer is yes, we can usually obtain a modification for you quickly for an affordable fee.

Complex Child Support Matters

Some aspects of child support can be more complex than simply entering numbers into a calculator. These cases may require considerably more effort to resolve.

For example, determining the income of a self-employed payer or one with hidden income can pose problems. In cases involving unmarried parents, the paternity of a father may first have to be established before a child support order can be obtained.

Gagnon, Peacock & Vereeke, P.C. has the experience and knowledge needed to resolve these and other aspects of child support.
