In Texas do I file for divorce first are seek the attorney general for child support?
1 Answer from Attorneys
If you file for divorce then the child support will be included in the divorce process.
If you do the c.s. first then the TX A G will still be involved in your divorce and must sign-off on the divorce. Once they get involved, they will be "involved" in your family's life "forever". I suspect that you won't enjoy that! I usually recommend that you avoid the TX A G office if at all possible.
So, I'd avoid going to the TX A G. It won't speed up your divorce and in fact could slow down the final divorce since you will have to have someone in the TX A G office "sign" the Final Decree of Divorce.
It appears you live in Harris County, TX.
I recommend attorney Patricia Bushman at 713-807-9405. She takes payment plans. I rent space in her office. Her first appointment is free. Tell her that I sent you!
You can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions.
My office phone is 713-847-6000.
I only mediate these days.
