    Shari’s Answer

    The Attorney General for the state of Texas is one of the most efficient child support collectors in the country, but the reality is, the good people who work for them are overworked. So your best bet here is if you think you are getting weak representation is to hire your own private attorney.

  • What is required when a parent seeks to emmancipate their child, who is sixteen years old.

    This child is currently not living at home, not going to school. I have reported her a runaway a few times, but the situation continues, she won't stay home
