When the Attorney General Office May Get Involved
The Texas Attorney General Office is solely concerned with the best interests of children of divorce. The preferences of each parent are set aside if they become in conflict with a child’s best interests. By working with our attorneys, you can anticipate the expectations of the Attorney General Office and form your case in a way that will likely be approved without challenge.
The Child Support Division of the Attorney General Office gets involved with:
- Child support: The parent with primary or sole parenting time will likely be eligible for some amount of monthly child support payments from the other parent. The money paid in child support can only be used in a way that directly benefits the child. That is to say, it is not simply more finances for the parent to use towards any purchase or bill payment. An Attorney General Court may establish child support, as well as how the funds are to be used each month.
- Paternity: In some divorce cases, the father of a child is not entirely clear or legally official. A paternity action handled by the Attorney General Court can provide finality and certainty. Without a clear idea of paternity, it can be a challenge to establish child support or parenting time. The solution may be a court-ordered DNA test.
- Enforcement of child support orders: When someone who has been ordered to pay child support refuses to do so, it is likely the Attorney General Office will become directly interested in the case. It is possible for the AG Court to enforce child support orders through a variety of actions, including summons, fines, and jail time.
