El Paso Child Support Attorney
Reaching a fair child support arrangement with your ex-spouse or partner can be challenging, especially when your ex is refusing to cooperate or is outwardly hostile. In these situations, it is important to remember that your children are the ones who matter the most and their needs should be your top priority. Hall Law can help you through this stressful process, offering compassionate guidance that aggressively pursues you and your child’s best interests when seeking a fair support order.
Can Child Support Be Stopped By A Custodial Parent?
You can apply to change or stop child support payments by filing for a child support modification with the court. The court will review your current financial status and information once again. Depending on their assesment of your situation, they may agree to modify the existing child support agreement.
You are the priority at Hall Law. Call (915) 529-0233 today to schedule your consultation.

Child Support and Custody
While custody can have an impact on which party pays child support, payments may be required even when parents share joint custody. This is because calculating child support in Texas relies on a number of factors, including, but not limited to:
- Both parents’ current monthly income and their future earning capacity
- Any debts and other expenses that either parent has
- The child’s special needs, including medical, schooling, and afterschool care or activities
When two parents do not have a 50/50 custody plan, the noncustodial parent generally pays a percentage of their monthly net income, based on the number of children. Under Texas Family Code chapter 154.125, the noncustodial parent will pay 20% for one child, to up to 40% for 5 or more children. These payments will be required until the child turns 18 or has been emancipated due to the child getting married, joining the military, or gaining full-time employment. Support payments may also cover college expenses, should the parent both agree.
Deviations to the calculations may be made if they are deemed to be in the best interests of the child. In these cases, our attorney will look at your family’s situation and argue there are relevant issues to consider when awarding or modifying a support order.
