Child support obligations are calculated based on state child support guidelines that consider the income of both parties and any other considerations based on a child’s needs. Any variance must be in the best interests of the child. While the courts adhere to the guidelines, it is important that the correct information is presented to ensure that you can collect support or ensure reasonable payments. Our Fort Worth child support attorneys handle cases involving:
- Original child support orders
- Modifications and enforcement
Spousal Support or Alimony

Factors that may affect support obligations include the duration of marriage, earning capacity of both spouses, standard of living and whether or not there was domestic violence.
