Child Support Enforcement

Child support is a legal obligation and Texas has severe consequences if child support is not paid timely. Child support is not conditional on possession or access. This means child support is owed regardless of how much you see your child. Either the parent entitled to receive child support or the Attorney General directly, may sue you for unpaid child support through an enforcement action. If found in violation of your court order, the judge may order penalties including:

  • Interest and fines
  • Suspension of a license including hunting, fishing and professional
  • Garnishment of wages
  • Seizure of bank account funds
  • Garnishment of tax returns
  • Repayment of attorney fees and court costs
  • Probation
  • Jail Time
