If you have just been through a divorce or a custody dispute and find that you also need to ask for child support from the other parent of your child, you need the help of knowledgeable and experienced family law attorneys who can advocate to protect your rights and interests.
Child support is a court-ordered payment, typically made by a divorced parent that does not have custody of a child. In order to help the parent with custody of the child, they are ordered to pay a certain amount of money. It is in your child’s best interest to have child support from both parents, not just from the parent that has physical custody of them. Child support makes it less likely that the child will have to do without important things like diapers or food because of financial struggles. It is not fair for you to have all of the financial responsibility. Get a knowledgeable Denton child support lawyer to help you get the money your child needs.

Cases We Handle
An unmarried parent or a dependent spouse can ask for child support to get monetary help raising a child until that child is 18 years old or graduates from high school. Sometimes, the child support will end early or extend beyond the age of 18 – a lawyer can help you determine if these exceptions apply to your family. Child support can be necessary in many situations including:
- Recently divorced or separated parents
- Two parents who were never married but are not together anymore
- Joint-custody parents where the child spends more time living with one parent rather than the other
Usually, the non-custodial parent has to pay the parent who has sole or primary physical custody of the child. The parent who does not have the responsibility of housing the child will have to give a set amount of money in order to help the other parent. The amount that you will get for child support is calculated using a percentage of the other parent’s net monthly income. Courts can also take into consideration the income of both parents, as well as each parent’s earning potential, along with the amount of time the child will spend living with each parent. This is not easy to calculate. Courts will need to look at pay stubs, expenses, and other financial aspects.
