Texas Divorce Attorney


Child & Spousal Support

Experienced Texas Family Law Support Lawyer

Child Support | Spousal Maintenance | Alimony | Modifications and Enforcement

The transitions you face when going through divorce include significant changes in financial resources. Where finances were once pooled together to cover your expenses as a family, you now have to adjust to meet your individual needs. You want to ensure that the material needs of your children are met, but you want to know that you won’t be responsible for more than your fair share—that your ex will meet his or her responsibilities, too. In addition, if you have become accustomed to a certain lifestyle, or have gave up your career to help your ex advance, you want to know that you won’t be left in poverty while your ex reaps the benefits of your sacrifice. If you have concerns about a child support or spousal maintenance order in Texas, you want an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to safeguard your rights.

Our Representation in Child Support Matters

Attorney Barrick will proactively protect your interests in all matters related to the determination of child support. We’ll ensure that the court has accurate information regarding all income earned by you and your ex, including self-employment, seasonal and commission-based income. If there are extenuating factors that require a deviation from the Texas child support guidelines, we will present that information to the court in a clear and effective manner, so that the court has adequate information to make the right determination. We can also represent you in any proceedings to enforce or modify an existing child support order.

Protecting Your Interests in Spousal Support Proceedings

Our firm will help you determine whether spousal support is appropriate in your situation, looking at all the factors identified under Texas law, including the length of your marriage, the respective education and job skills of you and your spouse, your health and the total financial resources available to both parties. We’ll help you determine if spousal support should be permanent, temporary, or until such time as both parties can be self-supporting. Attorney Barrick can also help you amend or enforce a spousal support order.
