Child Support: Protecting Your Children’s Rights
Child support is designed to protect the best interests of your children. Texas follows statutory guidelines to set the amounts you will pay or receive based on income of the “obligor” (the parent who is paying). The amount can be contested in cases of self-employment and irregular income. Also, it may vary according to factors set out below. With the help of a knowledgeable family law attorney, you can be assured that your rights will be protected, as well as the rights of your child.
Attorney Jim Jarvis has more than four decades of family law experience in Texas. He focuses on each client’s priorities and finding the most efficient, effective method of accomplishing their family law and child support goals.

- The “obligee’s” income or earning potential
- Child care expenses incurred in order to stay employed
- Care and support of other children
- College expenses for older children
- Health issues
- Special needs of children
- Distance and travel expenses
