  • Enforcement - Child Support
  •  
  • If you are ordered to pay or receive child support, pursuant to Family Code Chapter 154.001 and 154.002 and are not then please contact us, as we are here to help. The Domestic Relations Office has Attorneys who review each case for enforcement and decide what remedies will be recommended to the court on the particular facts of your case. Once you have filled out an application for enforcement, the person ordered to pay child support will be contacted and will be requested to pay immediately. If payment is not made nor payment arrangements made then the attorney will pursue court action to enforce the previous court order. Please note that when the parent who ordered to pay child support is self-employed, or receives cash payments, or is not employed, the process can take longer.
  •  
  • Our office works with outside programs such as NCP Choices, Texas Workforce, Fatherhood Effect Program and others to help the Parent prepare a resume, apply and obtain a job as well as offers counseling for parents that suffer from addiction or mental illness.
  •  
  • If you do not know where the other party is living or working, we do have a locate program that can be used to locate them. If they reside out of El Paso County, please note that there is a fee to hire a private process server to have them served for a Court action.
