Our team of child support attorneys in Brazoria County understand how important it is to strike this balance properly.
How Are Child Support Payments Determined In Texas?
In Texas, child support is calculated from child support guidelines.
The following items are included in the calculation:
- Noncustodial parent’s monthly net income
- Number of children needing child support
- Noncustodial parent’s other children not before the court
Medical insurance is not included in child support payments. The noncustodial parent will generally provide medical coverage in addition to child support payments.
Your Options For Child Support Modifications
The amount of child support required can change months or years after a divorce has been finalized. For the court to grant a child support modification, it must be shown that there has been a change of circumstance in material condition. For example, a parent may have a significant change in income – either an increase or decrease – or remarry. There are a number of factors that can merit a change to the existing child support arrangement. If you have questions about modifying child support, our firm can help.
