Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX to retain Texas counsel to file a motion to modify the support in light of your change in income and circumstance.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
i was aware of that the other issue is the agreed opon amount of 3000 for her and 2000 for my daughted i was told that because of the agreement the amount could not be changed and if it could what is the percent she is actually entitled to?
Expert:  DCrane replied 4 years ago.

Hello, the $3000 for her can be modified, the child support obligation is less likely to be modified. The percent that your wife is actually entitled to depends on the circumstances of your marriage.How long was your marriage?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
we were married for 9 years for the last 4 i was in kuwait and iraq
Expert:  DCrane replied 4 years ago.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX to qualify for spousal maintenance in Texas, you must have been convicted of family violence within 2 years of the date of the filing of divorce. Otherwise, she has no entitled to spousal support in Texas.
