Social status plays no part in Texas child support agreements

On Behalf of | Sep 20, 2017 | Child Support |

When Texas parents separate, children can often be left with the uncertainty and bitter banter that a child custody dispute can cause. Some parents can work through the disagreements and find a schedule that works for both parties and allows the children equal access to both parents. In cases where there is unresolved hurt between the parents, the custody battle can rage on and cause bumps in the road to finalizing the agreement. In the case of Rob Kardashian and his once fiancé but now ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna, the long, drawn out and very public breakup has finally reached a settlement with regard to the custody and child support payments concerning their infant daughter.

With the recently agreed-upon arrangement, Kardashian and Chyna will share custody of their daughter Dream. Kardashian will pay $20,000 a month in child support to help ensure that his daughter will have the care she needs. He has also agreed to pay all his ex’s legal fees.

Some speculate that this move has been one to hurry along the split. Others claim that this newly reached agreement was an effort by Chyna to get more child support out of Rob and for her to drop the domestic abuse allegations. Chyna originally was asking for $50,000 per month in child support with Rob only offering to pay $10,000 per month.

Regardless of the social ranking of parents, the end of a relationship can leave many adults emotionally drained and financially spent. When children are involved, a child custody battle can sometimes ensue, which can further stress an already strained relationship. Seeking the aid of an attorney who is well-versed in family law can help a parent to understand Texas law with regard to child custody options and child support obligations.
