Support Texas House Bill 939 sign now

Texas Family Code Sec. 154.132 has been denied by the 1st Court of Appeals (the court that handles my court in the 309th) and it was mentioned that the legislature needed to decide how to handle the situation. However, we see state law 154.132 has decided. If my court was in Bexar county I would be supported.

This is important to me and all disabled citizens who owe child support. My children have collected over $18,000. I am ordered to pay $175/month and the state avows this is $13,000.

If this bill doesn't pass my children will collect $493/month and the state will start accumulating 6\% interest on the $13,000. I earn less than $1000/month; pay $375 rent, $75/month on medication, $120/month to see doctors and around $225 in utilities not to mention a measly $125 a month on food for a diabetic. How am I to pay 6\% interest on $13,000?
