Child Support Law
Fair Child Support Agreements And Orders Start Here
Raising a child comes with certain financial responsibilities. Parents need to be able to support their children to ensure their needs are met. When one parent has primary custody over a child, child support agreements and orders can help to meet those needs and provide financial stability. Whether you are fighting for child support or trying to amend an existing child support order, the team at The Law Office of Frank P. Skipper has handled it all. Attorney Frank Skipper can recognize fair child support agreements when he sees them and can prevent his clients’ rights from being dismissed or stepped on.
Understand What Child Support Covers
Child support can cover a range of expenses, including, but not limited to:
- Health insurance
- Educational costs
- Some extracurricular activities
You and your child’s other parent can negotiate the various terms of child support. Your child may have extra costs that one of you is not able to cover on your own. Frank Skipper can negotiate for you and work with the other parent to account for these costs.
How Much Are Child Support Payments?
Just because your friend or neighbor pays $500 a month for child support certainly does not mean that is what you or your child’s other parent will pay. Every family is different, and every child support order is customized to fit that family’s needs. Your expenses may be higher, as you may have more children or a different job.
Various factors can help to calculate child support payments, including:
- Both parents’ net income
- Custody schedules
- Number of children
- Health insurance
Texas uses a specific formula to calculate payments. Mr. Skipper can explain the formula in greater detail and give you an idea of what you may be able to expect.
