San Antonio Criminal Child Support Lawyer

Serving the Families of San Antonio With Dedication

Texas has one of the most aggressive child support collection programs in the county. An entire division of the Texas Attorney General's office and specialized child support courts established all over the state will not show you much sympathy for unpaid child support.

Even if the custodial parent is not allowing you access to your children, the child support continues to accrue. For each month you have failed to pay child support, you can be punished by a fine and up to six months in the county jail!

Working Against the Attorney General

The bottom line, if the Attorney General is involved in your child support enforcement case, you need to hire a criminal lawyer. The Attorney General is only involved in the case to advocate for the State of Texas and its financial interests, not to represent you, the other parent, or even the best interest of your children.

Understanding Contempt of Court

Under Texas law, you can be punished for not paying child support under the guise of contempt of court. Contempt of court is what occurs when someone fails to obey a court order. Usually, the child support court is looking for money to be paid on behalf of your child.

The courts get particularly aggressive when you have missed numerous child support payments over a number of years and have accumulated a large sum of child support. You need an experienced attorney to negotiate a settlement on your behalf and keep you free.

All Is Not Lost – Contact a San Antonio Criminal Lawyer

Like any other crime, the burden is on the Attorney General and custodial parent to prove the case against you of contempt of court for unpaid child support. You can fight the allegations. An affirmative defense to criminal child support cases exists whereby you cannot be held liable for unpaid child support if you did not have the ability to pay it.

San Antonio defense Attorney Roberto Ambrosino has successfully litigated child support cases all over South Texas and defended clients from overzealous child support collection efforts.

  • “I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney.”
    I contacted Mr. Ambrosino about an issue we were having about two months ago. He was very responsive and always easy to communicate with. If ever I had a question during the process, he was quick to respond with an answer. He was kind enough to even email me while on vacation with his own family which showed he truly cares about his clients. Mr. Ambrosino took the time to educate me on the current laws and the court process. He sent me all the court filings and paperwork for my own files and always kept me up to date. In the end we received the outcome we were hoping for and I attribute that to Mr. Ambrosino’s hard work and knowledge. I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney. Thank you for your help Mr. Ambrosino.

  • “Mr. Roberto Ambrosino is an amazing lawyer!!!”
    Mr. Roberto Ambrosino is an amazing lawyer!!! I can not speak highly enough he is quick, efficient, and professional! I did everything online, through mail, and the phone. He kept in touch about every aspect of my case. After I sent documents and made a payment he approached the judge soon after and my case was closed. I am extremely pleased with his services. I highly recommend him. Now a few years later I reached out to him again regarding obtaining documents and again he is very communicative and on top of everything. I am a very satisfied customer.

  • “Mr. Ambrosino is a true professional. He truly delivers on his word.”
    Mr. Ambrosino is a true professional. He truly delivers on his word. When the prosecutor pushed back to prevent my acceptance into the PreTrial Diversions Program, Mr. Ambrosino fought back and earned my acceptance into PTD. Once I am done with PTD, he will be expunging my charge so that my record is clean for graduate school. Thank you Mr. Ambrosino.

    Mr. Ambrosino is an amazing lawyer. He is very matter of fact and to the point. He was able to get my case dismissed when all other lawyers told me that it would be impossible. I never felt like he gave me the run around with my case. He was always available to answer any questions I had. I would definitely hire him again.
