Temporary Child Support Payments in Houston, Texas
During the process of divorce, temporary child support is necessary to ensure your child's needs are met, and their insurance coverage is maintained.
Often when a couple divorces, it is hard for the custodial parent to support the child or children alone, so the court imposes temporary orders to provide for the children until a final dissolution order is issued. In these temporary orders, generally the non-custodial parent is ordered to give support to help the custodial parent provide for the children's needs.
The court determines how much child support is required, based on factors like the income of the non-custodial spouse, the number of children, and whether the paying spouse has other children to support. Since attorney Marlene Dancer Adams started this firm 30 years ago, she has been fighting for fair and equitable temporary custody orders that protect our client's children.
