Once a year either parent can go back to court and claim the current court orders are not working and need to be modified.
I find that normally it's costly and the children would prefer a trip to Disneyland. But most family law attorneys like these sort of folks because they are able to take their kids to Disneyland!
I prefer mediation to litigation so look and see if you are ordered to mediate before litigation.
I would suggest that you should immediately consult with an experienced family law attorney.
She can ask for anything and everything. But the burden is on her to show that the present orders are no longer appropriate. That is not always easy to do.
In Texas, most court's order mediation before litigation since judges know mediation works and keeps their sockets moving.

Ok. You will not like my answer.
Child support is only owed to the other parent. It is up to her if she will forgive all or some of the debt. It does not belong to the child. The child had to eat and be clothed all 8 years he was locked up. Just because he had no money did not stop the child from costing money.
The penalty is interest - now 6%. It used t be (years ago) 12% so imagine how horrible that was for the non-custodial parent.
Child support is the debt that is not discharges able. Until the child turns 18, he can be jailed. After the child turns 18 then he cannot be jailed - good news for him,
And he can lose his passport or driver's license for non-payment of child support.
If the debt is not paid when he receives social security then money will come out of his check each month.See question

I agree with attorney Eric. Alienation of affection lawsuits are specifically not allowed in the Texas family code.

Me and my wife went to court a year ago and got a agreement from the judge that she get my child every other weekend well she only try to come around 1 time a year around summer time only she do pay child support what should I do someone help
Going to jail is a criminal matter. Only the police can arrest you. If she calls 911 and the police come out then you can or she can be arrested.
So it does not matter who the custodial parent is of the child. If an assault occurs, someone is going to jail. Then it's up to the District Attorney what charges are proesecuted. If arrested, you will need to hire a criminal attorney. Plus, your ex then has a reason to go to court and ask the judge to switch custody.
I highly recommend that you do not get into any sort of physical argument with her. In fact, if you want to be protected, never be alone with her. Always have another adult present that is willing to come to court to testify on your behalf.
Other than that, I don't understand your question. So re-phrase and submit it again.See question

You need to talk to your attorney about this. If your attorney pleads for a disporporationate share of the community estate for a variety of reasons such as fault of the break-up of the marriage, health of the parties, etc. then the judge might give you more than 50% of the community estate.
If you don't own much since it does not sound like a long term marriage, then there won't be a lot to divide.,
Some attorneys are now including "tort law" with divorce law. You can certainly ask for damages under tort law and it's up to the judge to decide if he pays you anything.
It never hurts to ask. But it does not mean you win.See question
My daughter had a child at the age of 16 with a guy who is 17. She provides for the child on her own. The guy is threatening to get full custody of the child once he's 18 because he got angry over an argument they had. Is it possible for the judge...
I agree with attorney Moore. You need to hire a family law attorney to guide you in this matter.
Obvbiously this young father has no idea how the law in Texas works. Merely turns 18 won't mean that he gets custody. Plus in Texas there is no such thing as "full custody" - people use this term all the time but it means nothing to a lawyer. In fact, custody of a child is presumed to be 'JOINT CUSTODY" in Texas and I rarely see "sole custody" these days - such as if a person is on drugs or in prison.
What is truly important are "rights and duties" which outline how decisions regarding the child will be made.
Joiont custody does not mean that one parent does not pay child support.

Child support order was established in mid 2015. Taxes returns from 2010 to 2014 show my average self employment income as 100k (line 12 of 1040). This equate to 8333 per month. I visited Ken Paxtons state website for calculating child support. I ...
I hope I understood your question.
I used a different calculator. I calculated $100,000 a year less $89/month for health insurance for 2 kids. My monthly calculation of your child support is $1,543. All calculators use different programs written by programmers - I find that most calculators are within $50 of each other.
So what is your complaint?
If child support was calculated too high then you need to file a modification to lower it.
I assume that a judge signed the Order regarding the amount of child support order and until that amount is modified that is what you owe each month. You cannot get the money back from the child support that was ordered by a judge to be paid.
If you want to sue a lawyer, there are lawyers that do this sort of thing. So look around (I know one advertises on the Katy Freeway outside of Houston as you get close to Katy - I've seen the billboard for years but I have no idea who the guy is.)
Unfortunately, you'd be surprised how often child support is miscalculated.
A person can pay above-guideline support for many reasons - such as a child's special needs, or proof of the needs for above-guideline support, etc. So just because a website has a calculator does not mean that (without reviewing the entire file to determine the facts of your case) you are overpaying your child support.
Lastly, I assume that attorneys that sue other attorneys are not inexpensive. I find that attorneys normally are charging between $5,000 - $10,000 these days to just begin a case. I don't know if $20,000 is enough to begin litigation. I would assume that the law firm will not cooperate in refunding any money to you and that they will try everything not to lose this case.

You desperately need an attorney.
If the kids are US citizens then most judges will expect the kids to stay in the US.
You obvisouly don't understand Texas family law and you need an attorney to explain how the Ft Bend County courts might rule in your case.
If you allow him to take the kids out of the country, then there is the possibility that you will never see your kids again. If the country is not a member of the Hague Convention (international child abduction) then that country has made it clear that they will not honor US court orders.
In Texas, the laws are gender neautral. So neither parent is presumed to be the best person to have custody. That said, courts in Texas expect people to co-parent their children - that means live close enough for both parents to be involved in their children's lives and to have time to spend alone with them. You might be divorcing but your kids are a part of both of you and you both need to learn how to share the children.See question
