What's New in Texas Child Support Collection Law

Child Support Arrearage Contempt

Effective September 1, 2007, under Texas Family Code 157.005(a), a court has enforcement power, meaning the person owing child support may be put in jail for contempt of court for failure to pay child support. A party seeking such relief from the court may do so up to two years after the child becomes an adult or the child support obligation terminates. The old rule only allowed this relief for six months after the child emancipated.
