Dealing with child support issues in Texas might have gotten a little easier for some residents. The Attorney General’s office announced that a new child support office has opened in Killeen. This will likely make it more convenient for the Bell County residents with child support concerns to get the help they need.

A little over half of the active child support cases in the county are people who live in Killeen. The new office has six staff members who can help residents who go into the office with a variety of child support issues.

Most notably, the office, which is open five days per week, can handle military-related child support issues, such as frequent relocation and deployments. It can also handle cases that involve a fluctuating income, child support modification, locating missing parents and establishing paternity, among other services.

For Killeen parents who count on child support or have to pay child support, not having to drive to Temple will likely save some time. It might also make it easier to get the child support issues taken care of in a timely manner.

While this new office will make things easier, it is still vitally important for all parents who have to deal with child support to make sure they understand their rights. With the large number of military families in Killeen, it is important for divorced or separated parents to know how to deal with the life challenges being in the service brings up, including how to deal with child custody and child support while on active duty or deployments.
