Does the Office of the Texas Attorney General represent me in Court?
Whether you are the custodial parent or non-custodial parent, the office of Texas Attorney General does not represent you.
Also known as Texas AG (Attorney General), the AG is the chief legal officer of the State of Texas. Its office handles several issues including consumer complaints and child support division.
No, the AG does not represent an individual party, unless in limited circumstances.
Section 231.109(d) of the Texas Family Code says, “An attorney employed to provide Title IV-D services [i.e., one of the AG’s attorneys] represents the interest of the state and not the interest of any other party.”
The OAG is an enforcement agency. It is a neutral third party that represents interest of Texas, not individuals.
