Child Support in Texas
Child support is not optional. It is a child’s right to be supported by both of his or her parents and the obligation of one parent to pay child support to the other parent helps ensure that this is accomplished. Texas state guidelines found in the Texas Family Code are used to calculate child support payments. Factors the court can consider include gross incomes, number of children of the relationship, and health insurance costs. Ms. Levi will assist you with calculating fair and accurate child support payments and can do so today – please call to schedule a consultation.

In addition, Ms. Levi has access to forensic experts that may be required to give testimony to assist in the presentation of your case, which experts may including psychologists and other mental health professionals.
