State Senator Proposes New Child Support Bill

Texas Senator Bryan Hughes

An East Texas senator has filed a bill for the 2023 legislative session requiring fathers to pay child support at conception once paternity is determined. Sen. Bryan Hughes of Mineola, who represents most of our listening area, authored the bill, which orders a man to pay retroactive child support once an order has determined the child’s paternity and starting at the “earliest possible date of the child’s conception.” If the House of Representatives, the Senate, and Gov. Greg Abbott approve the bill, it will become law on Sep 1.
