My friend is from a small town down there in Texas. When she lost her daughter to a unloyal who got another woman pregnant while married to her she was ordered child support. Only fair, which I still don't get why she stayed with him after that, but that's another story. She was ordered an amount based off her income at the time. Now given her current mistake for a man she was with at the time bein no better, she was not educated in the field of life due to bein locked in the house 24/7 with no friends and no contact with anyone else til recently, she was unaware that she could do something about the amount given her position, or so I think. So I have questions for all the texans down there and lookin for the best answer possible, I research what I could of the texas laws on the web, but rather hear from people with the unpleasured experience of what I have come to called a third country on child support laws.
She's since the last order has been unemployed and now have two more babies that are in her custody so therefore extra expenses. does that state allow her to modify her order and decrease the amount due to new financial responsibilites of two more kids, who by the way are 3 and 2, and unemployed? In my experience and through others I know in many states have shared their stories with me, that it should have been reduced for the case of more kids and obligations to them, and for being unemployed. She simply can't afford the amount ordred. In addition, when filing a motion for the modification, does texas have a fee for filing such motion only for the modification? and last, when going for the modification, can they adjust her arrars amount back up to a year or any period of time given she has been unemployed for some years and her obligation of two new kids of 3 years old and 2 years old? Any information is highly appreciated. Thanks for the time and comments.
