  How do I file for child support?
           
The Brazoria County District Clerk’s office does not have the paperwork to establish child support. When a customer wants to establish child support, the customer can hire an attorney, ask the Attorney General for representation or go to any law library to obtain information on how to prepare a petition for child support. The Brazoria County Law Library is located at 111 East Locust St., Ste. 315A, Angleton, Texas 77515.

 

  What is a modification order?
           
A modification is any change to the terms of a child support order and must be signed by a judge. Possible changes include an increase or decrease in child support, a change of payee, change of payor, or the frequency of the payment. To obtain a modification, you must contact a private attorney; the Attorney General’s Office or obtain information from a law library on how to prepare your own modification.  The Brazoria County Law Library is located at 111 East Locust St., Ste. 315A, Angleton, Texas 77515.
