  1. Not likely. Of course there might be other factors that could cost custody.


  2. Yes, and No. Best to hire a #houstonfamilylawlawyer to best present your facts. Review of child support can happen about every 3 years.


  3. Low income alone would not likely be a reason to lose custody. Some circumstances relating to why the income is low, if they create other concerns, might.


  4. Not if custodial parent is a good, responsible parent and child is thriving in school and is happy.
