Question by Jamie: Legal Advice on Divorce in Texas Concerning Child Support?
My friend is going through a divorce. It will be over Sept. 8th. His ex got a lawyer to draw up the papers. He received his papers yesterday and they set his child support at $ 600.00 a month for 2 kids. They didn’t even ask for his pay stubs or call his work to see what he makes. Is there any way he can get this changed before Sept 8. How is the amount for child support set? Who does he need to talk to in order to get this lowered a bit?
Answer by La Vie Boheme
$ 600 for 2 kids is not a lot. I know that in NY, child support is 17% of the salary. My S.O. pays $ 700 a month for one child. All you can tell him is to Google TX child support calculator.
