A Smart, Analyitical Approach to the Law
If you are the custodial parent of a child, that is the parent with which the child primarily resides, the Texas Attorney General may be able to be of assistance to you on issues involving child support and medical/dental support.
The Texas Attorney General can help establish child support, modify the support amount, or enforce a child support obligation against the other parent if they are not paying their court ordered amount. The Attorney General will automatically become involved in your child's case if either you or your child is receiving any type of public assistance, for example Medicaid, food stamps, or TANF. You can also get the Attorney General involved in your child's case by applying for services through their local office. There are several reasons why it may be a good idea for a parent to do so.
While the Attorney General may be of assistance, custodial parents need to remember that the Attorney General's Office represents the State of Texas, NOT the custodial parent. Depending on how busy or efficient your local child support office is and the priority of your case, it can be a while before your case is filed.
Why wait for the Attorney General to file a modification to get your child support for you.
