Helping Parents Resolve Back Child Support Issues

Parents who fall behind on child support are at risk of significant legal and financial penalties in the state of Texas. Even a few missed payments may lead to jail time or a loss of custody or visitation.

From my law firm, the Law Office of V. Wayne Ward, I help fathers and mothers resolve back child support issues. Whether you have recently come into money, have obtained more lucrative employment or are simply tired of the stress of owing back child support payments, I can help.

Protecting You as You Provide For Your Child

As your attorney, I will put my more than 30 years of experience to work to help you:

  • Overcome your fear: Many parents who are behind on child support don’t act to resolve the issue out of fear of legal or financial punishment. In many cases, the courts are willing to work with individuals who make the effort to resolve a child support balance, regardless of the amount owed. I’m here to protect your rights and help you overcome your fears.
  • Explore your options: Parents who owe child support may have multiple options to resolve the issue. In addition to making a single, lump-sum payment of the balance, you may be able to create a payment plan or negotiate a reduced balance owed. I will help you work with the courts to explore all possible options.
  • Review the decree: It’s always important that both parents completely understand the current child support decree. This helps avoid confusion and ensures the accurate payment of child support. I will review every detail of your child support decree to ensure its fairness and accuracy, and to make sure the terms of the decree still apply to your situation. My analysis may limit the involvement of the courts and help you avoid overpayment of support dues. 
  • Limit potential penalties: Yes, you may be facing legal and financial penalties depending on the amount of support owed and the time passed since payment. These penalties can include jail time, court fees and fines. Fortunately, you may be able to reduce or avoid these penalties altogether by working with the courts to resolve your child support balance. I offer the legal guidance you need to understand these potential penalties and viable strategies for limiting the penalties already ordered against you.

By taking action, you can help provide a stable and healthy life for your children while avoiding the legal and emotional stress of owing back child support.
