Determining child support with kids in multiple households

For many that divorce in San Antonio, the dream of finding love again and remarrying may be very much alive. However, as we at The Law Office of Roland R. Esparza, P.C. have seen, doing so can potentially complicate matters for those paying child support. Yet if you do remarry and find yourself having to support children in multiple households, the law does allow you to revisit your original child support agreement.

Determining health insurance coverage for children of divorce

While the quality of healthcare available to children in San Antonio and throughout the rest of the U.S. is among the finest in the world, it often comes at a great cost. The skyrocketing costs of medical services may often deter parents from taking their kids to the doctor due to limitations with or a lack of health insurance coverage. Indeed, the Child Trends Data Bank reports that as recently as 2013, only 60 percent of kids in America were covered under private health insurance plans.

Law requires man to support child born to his long-estranged wife

Many couples in San Antonio may choose to separate for a short period of time in hopes that the distance and time apart may solve any marital issues that they may be experiencing. However, if they ultimately discover that their differences are irreconcilable and decide to end their marriages, it likely may be beneficial to them to go through the divorce process rather than simply staying separated. Texas Family Law is highly structured, and while avoiding having to deal with it may save one from a little bit of unwanted hassle in the short term, such a decision could come back to haunt him or her later.

Defining wage and salary presumption guidelines for child support

Here at The Law Office of Roland R. Esparza, P.C., many of the San Antonio clients with whom we work question how to accurately determine how much a parent can reasonably pay in child support. If you and your ex-spouse are able to come to an agreement on child support on your own, then the court will likely respect that. However, if you are not, then the decision of determining child support payments falls to the courts own formula. Before applying that formula, however, the assets that your ex-spouse has available from which to make child support payments must be determined.

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.
