Understanding when a child support obligation ends

When children are born in San Antonio, their parents often begin planning out the major events in their lives, from their first days of school to the moment they go off to college. While such plans between a couple may change if and when they divorce, those events will still likely happen, just under different circumstances. The responsibility of parents to support children as they reach and pass major life events remains in place regardless of marital status. This may lead some of those who are responsible for paying child support to wonder exactly how long their obligations will remain in place.

Outlining the proper reporting of child support on taxes

As the year winds down, people in San Antonio will often start to turn their attention towards collecting information for their taxes. Reporting one’s taxes is already a complex process. Adding the payment or receipt of child support to the mix may only serve to complicate it further. Both those making and receiving such payments often share a great amount of confusion as to how they may affect one’s tax status. As incorrect information on a tax form can result in scrutiny from the Internal Revenue Service, it is important to understand the tax implications of child support prior to preparing one’s taxes.

Enforcing child support obligations through a license suspension

Here at the Law Office of Roland R. Esparza, P.C., we work with many clients who are struggling to get their ex-spouses to honor their child support agreements. If you are like most of those we have helped to resolve this issue, then you are probably not aware of the many methods the state is allowed to employ to collect un-paid child support. One such method that often proves to be extremely effective is suspending an obliged parent’s driver’s license.

The child support payment formula in Texas

San Antonio parents who choose to divorce almost inevitably have questions when it comes to determining child support payments. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, over $37 billion in such payments was due in 2011. Given the amount of money involved, the responsibility to ensure that child support is determined equitably is left to state family courts.
