How is child support determined?
Child support payments in Texas are calculated by a standard formula. As your lawyer, Tad Nelson explains the formula and the factors involved in determining support payments. The child support guidelines consider the net income of the non-custodial parent and the number of children. The net income of the non-custodial parent is calculated by subtracting the following from the gross income:
- Social security taxes
- Federal income tax
- State income tax
- Union dues
- Health insurance expenses for the children
It may be possible to deviate from the guidelines, but a carefully constructed case needs to be made for any deviations from the standard guidelines. Our firm will answer any questions you may have about complications that could arise throughout the process. We also work to identify and locate hidden assets that could impact child support determinations.
Child Support Enforcement
Do you need assistance enforcing a child support order? When the parent responsible for paying support does not pay, you may bring an enforcement action to collect child support. The non-paying parent could be held in contempt of court and actions such as wage garnishment may be ordered by the court.

Thank you Tad Nelson for standing up for me and what is right, Tad Nelson is obviously well known and respected through out the court system as he spoke with authority and precisely to the assistant DA resulting in the dismissal of my case before the case went to trial. Thank you again. if you want it done call Tad Nelson
I hired them a while back for a DWI out in Harris County, they're good and if you need help with any kind of legal matter, give em a call. For a lawyer, Tad has a great personality so working with him should be easier than working with other lawyers.
He is the one lawyer that I can call and put my trust into. We’ve used him a couple of times, once for a family matter and another time for a troubled relative. He’ll help, tell you the truth with no sugar-coating, and will work for his salt. He’s a good guy and when you go to their office, they make you feel at home, like you’re part of the team. Good lawyers and great folks.
I've had the pleasure of working with Tad personally as a technology consultant for him in the past. We've eaten lunch and dinner together. I know that Tad is very dedicated to his clients and cares for them off the clock. He's definitely the lawyer you want on your side.
