Texas child support may not be a private matter

The break up of a relationship can be hard, especially so when children are involved. Whether one is a celebrity or an average citizen of Texas, the dissolution of the union can then become open to public scrutiny. One such athlete, Miguel Cabrera, has found himself at the other end of a lawsuit initiated by a woman in another state. She claims that he is not paying enough in child support, and he says she is simply trying to extort him under the guise of child support.

Social status plays no part in Texas child support agreements

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.

Texas parents behind on child support denied registration renewal

Having a vehicle or some form of reliable transportation is paramount not only to earning a living but also in the freedom of going wherever, whenever. What comes as a surprise for most Texas parents who are behind on their child support payments is a statue that has recently been put into effect to help keep noncustodial parents on top of child support payments. The state now will not allow those more than six months behind in payments to renew their motor vehicle registrations.

Texas man owes child support for a child that is not his

The birth of a child is often a wondrous and highly anticipated event for the parents. Planning and preparing for the arrival of the newest member of the family can be an exciting time when names and nursery colors are chosen. For some Texas residents, the situation may be less than perfect when the sweet bundle of joy makes his or her appearance. The parents may be in the process of a divorce or if the parents weren't married, the relationship may have recently ended, leaving the primary caregiver seeking child support and/or a custody agreement.

Texas residents understand their rights in child support cases

When a relationship dissolves and children are involved, the financial and custodial care of the kids is sometimes split between the parents. One parent is usually required or openly agrees to pay a portion of the expenses associated with raising and caring for the children born during the relationship. Even with the best of intentions, circumstances change, and those necessary child support payments can fall behind or become increasingly difficult to make for Texas residents.

Fleeing Texas child support obligation not a good idea

When it comes to supporting a child, the financial, emotional and time investment is a commitment that is not to be taken lightly. Regardless of the parents' desire to be together as a couple, the commitment to the child remains in place. When a Texas parent chooses to or cannot afford to pay child support and the court is not petitioned to modify the obligation to an affordable amount, enforcement actions are available.

What driving has to do with child support in Texas

The new year is upon us, and some Texas parents are facing challenges concerning child support and custody orders. Last month, a new law took effect in this state regarding parents who have not kept up with child support payments. The law has raised concerns among representatives who work in a country tax assessment and collection office.

Even celebrities seek child support modifications

Unanticipated happenings can change the financial situation of anybody overnight. Despite the good intentions of a noncustodial parent, a job loss or emergency medical procedure can render a parent unable to pay court-ordered child support. Texas parents facing such difficulties may be surprised to learn that even celebrities may face such dilemmas.

How will child support be calculated in a Texas divorce?

Texas parents who are considering divorce may be concerned about the post-divorce welfare of their children and whether their best interests will be protected. The manner in which the amount of child support is determined may be one of the questions parents have. Because the dynamics of each family are unique, several aspects will be considered, according to the guidelines under family law.

Car registration renewal to be refused if child support is behind

Noncustodial parents in Texas who struggle to keep up to date with obligated payments may not be aware that the Office of the Attorney General has announced a new method of enforcement. Those whose child support payment are behind for 180 days or more will not be allowed to renew the registration of their vehicles. This new law will take effect on Sept. 1.
