Texas Child Support Enforcement

The Office of the Attorney General is the official child support enforcement agency in Texas. If you are a parent receiving child support, you may have heard about "child support enforcement." Generally speaking, this term refers to any legal action taken by the state to make sure that your child receives the financial support that he / she needs.

"What happens if my ex won't pay child support?"

According to the Child Support Enforcement Act of 1984, the district attorney can help you collect unpaid child support payments. If the parent continues to refuse payment, he /she may be subject to these penalties:

  • Wage garnishment
  • Withholding tax refunds
  • Driver's license revocation
  • Business license suspension

For parents who owe more than $2,500, the United States Department of State may refuse passport issuance. Eventually, the parent will be held in contempt of court.

"Do I have to pay child support if I lose my job?"

If a parent loses his / her job, he / she is still obligated to pay child support. In fact, the court will not forgive overdue child support payments for any reason – even job loss. If the delinquent parent cannot realistically continue to make child support payments, he / she should ask the court for a child support modification.
