The answer to this question is yes. If you have child support arrears then generally your settlement will be reduced or taken by the Attorney General.
It is usually only a judgment though and if the case is still pending and no child support judgment has been taken yet you may not have to pay it.
If there is a judgment then usually what happens is that the Texas Attorney General send a lien notice to us to hold on paying the amount awarded because of child support owed. We can negotiate with the Attorney General if this happens and send a lower amount sometimes.
