Many Texas residents serve in the military. In most cases, military law does not follow a separate set of rules regarding family law for its military men and women. There might, however, be certain exceptions and special measures that the military men and women can take to ensure that their legal standing is not compromised in cases relating to child support due to their deployment.
In Dallas, child support enforcement is taken very seriously. Parents who are obligated to make monthly payments for the upkeep and care of their children are required to do so or face penalties if they don't. In the event that a parent who is supposed to be paying child support fails to make the payments, law enforcement will use multiple tactics to pursue them and get them to pay. It can lead to significant problems down the road for the supporting parent.
