In the December, 2013 issue of Houstonia Magazine I was recognized as one of the top family law attorneys in the Houston area. I did not pay for this recognition & was pleasantly surprised to have been chosen to receive this honor. I encourage people to mediate their case instead of allowing a stranger (a judge) to determine what is best for their children. YOU know what will work best for y... view profile
If you are a parent and you divorce, the parent the child lives with often receives money (child support) from the parent no longer living with the child. Unlike alimony, which is paid to maintain an ex-spouse's lifestyle, child support pays for the child's physical, emotional, and educational needs. A child support lawyer can help parents negotiate and calculate child support, either by agreement or in court. While national guidelines to calculate child support amounts exist, you or the judge may choose to calculate the amount based on your income and the child's needs. If you believe you are not the father of a child and want to contest a child support claim, a child support lawyer can also help you determine paternity. A child support lawyer can be useful during negotiations to help objectively determine the most appropriate amount of child support for your situation and protect against paternity fraud.
