Wages garnished for father whose child support was up to date

When a Texas family court orders child support, there are certain procedures to be followed. Deviating from those procedures and making alternative arrangements for paying can have devastating consequences. A Texas father who chose to pay his ex-wife directly rather than submitting payments to the child support disbursement center found his wages garnished for the money he had already paid.

Many couples nationwide, including in Texas, are able to end their marriages in amicable manners. However, the contention that sometimes surrounds the property division process can result in costly and time-consuming litigation. High-net-worth couples who never signed prenuptial agreements sometimes battle over assets for months or even years.

Child custody not required for parent-child relationships

It is not uncommon to hear remarks from noncustodial parents in Texas saying that they are only seen as a source for money. There is nothing farther from the truth. The most important responsibility of a noncustodial parent is to maintain a loving and close parent-child relationship. Although it is true that the parent with physical custody needs financial support, there is much more to being a parent, even if you don't have child custody.

Can child support continue after high school graduation?

Some non-custodial parents in Texas may believe that child support always ends on a child's 18th birthday. However, that is not always the case. In legal terms, child support ends when a child reaches the age of majority, which is usually at age 18. This is the point in a teenager's life when he or she is considered mature enough to make his or her own legal decisions as an adult.
