Child Support

Child Support Attorney in Houston

Many people in Texas believe that child support is only the responsibility of the non-custodial parent. However, the truth is both parents contribute to the financials costs of raising children. These costs are taken into account when negotiating a divorce decree that benefits all parties involved, especially what is in the best interests of the children.

At The Alsandor Law Firm, located in Houston, Texas, we provide sound counsel to parents who are trying to figure out their support obligations. Our child support attorneys in Houston are experienced at helping people determine when the state guidelines should be used to calculate their child support payments or when a creative approach is called for that deviates from these guidelines.

We Consider Every Factor When Calculating Child Support

Cheryl Alsandor is a Board Certified Family Law Specialist who is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and who has extensive experience helping parents who are responsible for child support payments and those who are pursuing the collection of funds.

When we meet with clients who are getting divorced, we will always begin by giving people an estimate of what their child support obligations would be under the traditional calculations. We will then carefully assess your situation to see if there are reasons to rebut or not adhere to these guidelines, such as the following examples:

  • If the child has certain special medical needs or therapies
  • Extraordinary expenses related to extracurricular activities, hobbies or sports training on the Olympic level
  • If one parent takes care of more than one child or children outside the marriage, even if when children live in separate households

Often, there are other issues that may arise when trying to accurately calculate what an appropriate child support payment should be, especially when one parent is self-employed. We have experience researching earnings and helping self-employed payors as well as spouses who are trying to collect from self-employed payors.

Modifications and Enforcement

We also routinely help people apply for modifications when their circumstances have substantially changed such as a job loss or other event that hinders their ability to pay. If someone has not applied for a modification and is delinquent in payment, we can help you pursue an enforcement action in family court as well.

Whatever your child support concerns, we encourage you to contact us today to schedule a consultation to discuss your needs.

One of the best decisions I have ever made was to hire Ms. Cheryl Alsandor. I am very please and grateful, she is by far the most knowledgeable and efficient attorney i have ever dealt with. Her knowledge to destroy an opponent in a court room is incredible. Her ability to catch them in lies and ask the questions to make them look like the idiots they are is key. If you have a serious court issue for family or custody, you need to hire Ms. Alsandor. She knows the law and can see through the opponents lies and intentioal missleading actions. The Judges are sometimes is blinded by the lies of the other side if you dont have a excellent attorney to clear the path for the judge. Ms. Alsandor will clear the path and let the judge see the truth and you will be victorious. Follow your gut and trust Ms. Alsandor. You will be glad you did, believe me.

Mrs. Alsandor is an excellent attorney; but most of she is a very empathetic person. This is what separated her from the other attorneys I consulted before hiring her. She helped me during one of the most diffcult times of my life. I was divorcing my wife and fighting for primary custody of my 10 year old son. I actually did not think I would be granted custody being that I am a man and the court systems usually favorite women as being the primary custodian. However after I consulted with Mrs. Alsandor she basically assured me she would do everything legally possible to assure that I was granted custody. Mrs. Alsandor was very understanding, kind and very compassionate. I felt as if she had taken my case personally and this was her fight as well. She responded to my many phone calls and emails; and there were a lot(because of my nerves) Her prices were very reasonable for the extraordinary work that she does. I recently recommend her to one of my co-workers and he noticed the very same qualities. Mrs. Alsandor was God sent. I am happy to report I did win primary custody of my son. We are doing well and we are very happy all thanks to Mrs. Alsandor. Nelson D.

My case was handled well, with professionalism and within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Attorney Alsandor to anyone because she is straight forward and stayed within the guidelines of the law. I did not have to worry about winning my case because she had it under control. I especially like that I did not have to do a lot of work like traveling to her office and missing meetings at my office because we communicated via email, where I could sign the documents and scan and send it. Lastly, her prices where affordable and I was able to easily pay online, which again saved me time. Steven
