The Texas Office of Attorney General of Texas (OAG) Child Support Division is a massive bureacracy and individuals caught in child support cases with them may feel powerless and unfairly treated. But the authority and discretion of the Attorney General’s office is limited by the same rules as to private practitioners. The Texas Family Code, the Rules of Civil Procedure, local rules of Court, etc. all apply to even them. In fact, in one case they were held subject to sanctions and attorney fees for their abuses. Attorney General v. Cartwright, 874 SW 2d 210 (Tex. App.–Houston [14th Dist.] 1994, writ denied).
