If the paying parent is not working, it may be a good idea to determine whether he or she is receiving Social Security benefits. As it turns out, there are types of Social Security benefits that can be garnished to collect delinquencies.

Texas divorce law presumes that property owned by married individuals is property of both husband and wife.
