Child Support Archives

What does child support cover?

Texas is like many states in that it uses a general equation to calculate the amount of child support that a non-custodial parent should pay. The formula does not take into consideration the income of the custodial parent, but does consider the number of children, the cost of living, and other relevant factors. Whether determined by a judge or agreed upon by the parents, the idea is to provide for the basic needs of the child or children.

Finance-focused summer camps growing in popularity

Summer camps have long been a staple of the summer experience for kids here in the United States. However, the types of summer camps available have been changing over time.

Lawsuit accuse baseball star of unpaid child support

Unfortunately, when a family separates, the cost of living goes up. In the state of Texas, both parents have a moral and legal obligation to support their children. Child support laws are in place to ensure that parents live up to their financial responsibilities regarding their children. If one parent fails to meet these responsibilities, legal action may be appropriate. Recently, a lawsuit was filed against major league baseball player Jose Reyes amid accusations of failing to pay child support.
