East Texans share their stories
Child Support is a big issue here in East Texas. And everywhere else for that matter.
It's typically based on the income of the non-custodial parent - and if they don't pay, the parent trying to get their fair share usually ends up at an Attorney General's office.
But most of the time, they have to play the waiting game, because the office is so busy with cases - over 12,000 here in Smith County alone.
But one East Texas mother, Desire Garcia, hired her own attorney.
