The Friedman Law Firm knows that parents want to ensure that they can continue to provide for their children. In Texas, the amount of child support a parent is required to pay is largely determined by the Texas Child Support Guidelines and the amount of time the child is in each parent's care. Other factors, including children with special needs or a parent who has considerable financial means, allow judges to have some discretion in determining the amount of support payments. Our firm can assist parents in obtaining a child support order, modifying an existing order and obtaining past due support.
