Child Support Enforcement during COVID-19

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Child Support in Texas

At Diggs & Sadler, we understand the essential nature of receiving child support, especially during the worldwide spread of the novel coronavirus (otherwise known as COVID-19). We know and understand that many of you have concerns during this difficult time, and we are here to help guide you through it.

I Have Not Been Receiving Child Support from the Other Parent. What Are My Options?

If you are not receiving court ordered child support, there are several ways to motivate the other parent to comply with the order through a Suit to Enforce Child Support (Tex. Fam. Code Ann. § 157.001). In an enforcement proceeding, the Court may impose various penalties against the non-complying parent through incarceration, community supervision, payment of a fine, confirmation of child support arrearages, child support lien, levy on financial institutions, and/or license suspensions pursuant to Texas Family Code section 157.003.

An obligee (the party receiving child support) seeking to enforce a child support order should keep in mind that there is a possibility an obligor (the party ordered to pay child support) may seek to modify the amount of child support they are ordered to pay. See “How Do I Lower My Child Support? ”for more information.
