Fort Worth And Burleson Child Support Lawyers

Texas courts follow fixed child support guidelines for the amount of child support awarded in divorce cases. Texas guidelines follow a flat percentage model, based on a percentage of the noncustodial parent's income and the number of children they are supporting.

If you have no lawyer, or you have an ordinary lawyer, the court will apply these guidelines to your case. But the guidelines are just that, a set of recommendations. A knowledgeable lawyer can show the court what amount represents your financial circumstances. Whether you expect to pay child support or receive child support, the lawyers at Lovelace Killen P.L.L.C., of Fort Worth, can help.

Our job is to use every bit of our knowledge of child support law to protect your and your child's interests — not just what the law says in the books, but also how it plays out in thousands of Texas cases.

Q. Which side in child support proceedings usually gets its way?
A. The side with the most knowledgeable lawyer.

Our lawyers will present your case with clarity and logic, showing why the child support number should be the one you favor. We will marshal evidence showing what your true income is, how much support is paid to children from other relationships, health insurance costs, retirement contributions and the cost of traveling to visit the child.

Armed with our analysis and presentation, your chances of arriving at a number close to the one you propose is quite high.

Because children are constantly changing, and because life circumstances change, modifications to child support agreements are often necessary. Look to the family lawyers at Lovelace Killen to effect the modifications you want. Likewise, we are available to assist in matters of child support payment enforcement through the courts.

To obtain optimal child support awards, you must first obtain optimal legal counsel. Lovelace Killen P.L.L.C. is here to serve Texas families through times of transition. Call our attorneys for a no-cost, no-obligation initial consultation at 817-349-6106, or email us using this form.
