Criminal Child Support Defending Rights. Fighting Injustice.

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.
