Child support is an important consideration to make if you plan on suing for full or joint custody of your child or children, but will need child support in order to raise them from your spouse.
There are numerous reasons why it may be necessary to file for sole or joint custody, including if you and your ex-spouse no longer live close to one another. However, this does not mean that you both do not need to continue paying for the financial aspects of child rearing. If your spouse gives up custody to his or her children, he or she may still have to keep paying for their needs.
If you are planning on filing for divorce and custody of your children in Texas, it is absolutely vital that you contact a child support attorney. This will allow you to have the protection that you need by asking that your spouse continue to make payments toward the needs of your children.
Just because you sue for sole custody of your children, that does not mean you are removing your spouse's financial obligations to his or her children, which is why child support attorneys exist.
If you are going through a divorce with your spouse and there are children involved, it would benefit both you and your spouse to contact an attorney. By having an attorney on your side you will have a much greater chance of getting the child support that you need. To learn more about child support, request our FREE report, Child Support in Texas.
