I have two child support garnishment cases that I am paying. One is in Texas, and the other is in California. The Texas case is for my seven-year-old and is an older case where I only pay past due child support. The combined orders exceed the maximum that can be garnished.

My understanding is that the Texas garnishment should be give priority. My employer will only comply with this, however, if I go back to California and get the support order there modified. That is, if a judge or commissioner would do this. 

Currently, my employer's solution is to take the legal maximum out of my wages and split evenly between the two. I don't want to create an arrearage in Texas. If I pay the Texas support out of pocket, I'm left with less than 30% of disposable income.

Can I get my employer to handle this properly? What are my options here?

Question:carrie westbrook attorney texas

My wife and I are divorcing after being married for 6 months. I believe she  has undiagnosed personality and psychological disorders. She's also 30 weeks pregnant. I would like to file for joint custody of the child. I probably won’t fight for full custody, as I know that the odds are stacked against me.

Right now, because I'm 63 years old, I'm also receiving Social Security Retirement benefits. I understand that once my son is born, he can receive these benefits under my name. 

Will the Social Security Retirement benefits eliminate or reduce the amount of child support I must pay if the judge does not grant me joint custody? Is there a way I can better prove joint custody is needed here?

kids parental alienationBy Julie Garrison

Divorce and wrangling over child custody concerns is never pleasant. But in high-conflict divorces, things can rapidly escalate out of control with very little provocation. 

While most divorcing parents manage to maintain their moral principles and overall composure during custody disputes, there are also those estranged spouses that can seem impossibly difficult.
