Pursuing A Fair Child Support Agreement

One of the most contentious areas of a divorce is child support. Negotiating for a fair child support value on your own, whether you are the paying or receiving parent, can quickly become a heated argument that results in your children missing out on the resources they need or you receiving an arrangement that is unfair to you.

At Law Offices of Deborah S. Perry, PLLC, we do not believe in weaponizing child support as a way to gain leverage over the other parent. Instead, we want to be sure that the agreement you and your spouse negotiate or a judge decides on is based on the facts of the matter so that it is fair for everyone involved. We have more than 20 years of experience representing parents through their child support needs, and we know how to pursue the outcome our clients deserve in their cases.

Presenting The Facts In Your Case

In Texas, judges consider a list of factors in a child’s life before determining a child support value. While we represent you through your family law needs, you can rest assured we will gather the necessary evidence to prove the reality of these factors, such as:

  • The ability each parent has to provide for their children
  • The income of each parent
  • The unique medical needs of the children
  • Child care costs
  • Any relevant alimony payments
  • Any wage deductions
  • Health insurance costs
  • Other notable costs, like education

While judges have a certain formula they follow to determine child support, there is also some room for leeway. As we represent you, we aim to ensure that leeway lands in a favorable position for you and your children.

If you are pursuing a resolution through negotiation, we have extensive experience in mediation and can act as an impartial mediator between you and the other parent, or represent your needs through negotiation as well so that you have more control over the outcome of your divorce agreement.
