Thank you for your question.
1) Unfortunately verbal changes to child support
orders are not valid. Whenever there is an agreement to suspend child support, a stipulation and request for modification with the court is required. So unfortunately she can request the court to require that you pay the $2,600.00. It will be your burden to prove that she verbally agreed to change.
Further, in Texas you cannot go to jail unless it is proved that you intentionally
avoided your child support obligations. Based on the information you provided, I don't see how you would go to jail. You will be required to pay the arrears but not go to jail. In Texas it takes about $5000.00 plus for a warrant to be issued.
2) The law does not allow a parent to terminate their parental rights
in order to stop child support. So unfortunately this option will not work for you as the judge will not release you from your financial obligation.
3) All you can do is present your argument that there was a verbal agreement. In the alternative you can negotiate a payment plan so that you can make the payments.
