Domestic Relations Office

  • About Us
  • Mission Statement
  • To efficiently and effectively ensure compliance with family court orders in accordance with our legal authority from sections 202 & 203 of the Texas Family Code. We endeavor to maximize the functionality of this legal system while minimizing the burden to the taxpayers.
  • Under chapter 203 of the Texas Family Code-each County within the State of Texas has the ability to establish and fund a Domestic Relations Office (DRO). During fiscal year 2000, County Commissioners unanimously voted to establish a DRO for El Paso County. The El Paso County Domestic Relations Office is comprised of four divisions: Child Support Monitoring and Customer Support Division, Friend of Court Division, Family Court Services Division, and Community Supervision Division.
  • The Child Support Monitoring and Customer Support Division is responsible for receiving, logging and forwarding payments to the custodial parents in accordance with El Paso County child support orders. The Friend of Court Division provides legal enforcement of orders regarding child support, visitation and medical reimbursement. The Family Court Services Division conducts court ordered social study investigations to assure compliance with child support and visitation orders. The Community Services Division provides the courts with a compelling alternative to incarceration for non-compliant parties and acts to remind everyone to defer to the courts original order.
