Calculating Child Support

Child support throughout Navarro and Ellis County is money paid by the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent for expenses related to the children.

Texas law guidelines determine the amount of support by using the amount of time each parent spends with the children and their income levels.

There are, however, other variables that can enter the court's support determination.

Family attorney Crawford's extensive experience with award variables will produce the best outcome for your children.

Building Families through Adoption

If you are looking to complete your family by adopting in Navarro or Ellis County, contact The Law Office of Michael J. Crawford for assistance with this complex matter.

Each of the following adoption scenarios has special requirements under Texas law:

  • Domestic – When children resides in Texas
  • Interstate – When a child(ren) is from a state other than Texas
  • International – When a child(ren) is from outside the U.S.
  • Stepparent adoption – Where one stepparent adopts the child(ren) of the spouse
  • Grandparent adoption – Where a grandparent is concerned about a grandchild(ren) living in an unsafe environment and has taken on a parental role (or seeks to do so)

Family Law Office of Michael J. Crawford offers extensive experience and expertise in all types of adoption placements, whether agency or private, open or closed.

Enforcement Actions in Contempt

Because a divorce decree is a court order in Navarro or Ellis County, noncompliance by either party can lead to legal enforcement activities.

These most commonly include:

  • Nonpayment of support
  • Refusal to abide by visitation schedule

Early intervention by a family law attorney experienced in enforcement may avoid costly and unpleasant litigation, and instead focus on productive planning to resolve the family issues.
