How can the court get my ex to make child support payments?

A parent who has been ordered to pay child support may not always come through.

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.

Military parents can seek child support changes when pay rates go down

Getting a divorce while in the military can have a profound effect on our brave service members.

Back to school shopping and child support modifications

For many children, a new school year has begun. For parents this may be a difficult time of the year, especially if there are disputes over which parent should be responsible for paying for new clothes, school supplies and extracurricular activities. This disagreement usually commonly arises because the non-custodial parent (who already pays child support) may not want to pay additional money to help pay for supplies, clothes and fees that ostensibly should be paid for with child support funds.
