Our attorneys understand the complexity of a child support case and are prepared to guide you through the process, even if you are pleased with the initial results. Child support is calculated using a mandatory formula that includes, among other dollar amounts, the income of each parent. It is possible to deviate from the formula in some situations. For example, if one parent earns a significantly large income, it may be necessary and possible to deviate from the guidelines. If one parent believes that the trial court was incorrect in determining the amount of child support, the decision can be appealed.
The attorneys at Verner Brumley Mueller Parker in Dallas help parents prosecute and defend child support appeals. We are ready to take on the challenge of your appeal for the best possible outcome.
You must act within a specific time frame when appealing a child support decision. A request for child support findings must be made within 10 days of the child support hearing.
Our appellate attorneys recognize the time-sensitive nature of appeals and can act swiftly to ensure that all deadlines are met. Child support findings provide our attorneys with information to bolster their arguments and help to sway the decision in your favor. As with any decision involving children, our attorneys and the court will always be motivated by what is in the best interest of the children.
