Helping parents who are owed back child support

From everyday expenses such as food and clothing to school costs and medical expenses, there are a variety of reasons why many people depend on child support to get by. Unfortunately, in San Antonio, and across Texas, far too many parents are owed back child support, which can make life incredibly difficult for them and their children as well. At the Law Offices of Roland E. Esparza, we take these matters seriously and are ready to fight for the rights of those who haven't received the child support payments they need and deserve.

What authority does a mediator have?

In the cases of most divorcing couples in San Antonio, even those intent on resolving all of their issues during mediation will often come to an impasse over the custody of their kids. This raises the question of what authority does a mediator have in resolving such disputes. You may view a mediator like you would a judge, but both roles are very different. A mediation hearing is not the same as an actual trial hearing, and thus, the same rules and restrictions of the court do not apply. The same can be said for the powers granted to the mediator.
