Child Support


Child support cases are generally not as contentious as those regarding child custody, as Texas has issued statutory guidelines for the judges to follow when calculating support payments. The judges determine the income of the parties, and the formula then determines the support that should be paid in each case.

While this seems like it should be easy to apply, there are often disagreements between the parties regarding the amount of income that should be included under the guidelines. Some parents may even try to conceal or underreport what they are making in an effort to avoid paying higher support payments.

Whether you need assistance obtaining a support award or need help contesting a request for support, the experienced family law attorneys at Woodley & Dudley are here to help. Our skilled lawyers have handled a number of these cases from each side, and know what is necessary to present a compelling case that helps you advance your interests.

A Thorough Approach to Your Case

Our lawyers work with financial experts to determine the appropriate incomes of the parties. We then evaluate other factors that may impact child support payments, such as the amount of time the parents receive with the kids, to help better understand the potential amount of child support that may be necessary in each case.

Additionally, our attorneys also offer assistance in cases where you may need to revisit a previous support award. If there has been a major change in circumstances of one of the parents, such as a new job, it may be possible to modify the existing order.
