How is Child Support Calculated?
In Texas, child support is calculated based on the family law code's statutory guidelines.
The law uses several factors to determine the final amount of child support to be paid to the child or children's primary custodian, including:
- The number of children
- Net income of the non-custodial parent
- Monthly health insurance expense and who pays for it
While it is difficult to deviate from these guidelines, a family law judge may award a child support amount higher or lower based on the needs of the child. For example, a child may require special medical care, education or other needs that should be taken into consideration.
Additionally, our clients benefit from a law firm that practices in several areas, including criminal law. If you are late on your child support payments or you need help enforcing a child support order, we can represent you.
