Don't let your child go without support

Whether you are the custodial or noncustodial parent, you want to know that child support has been determined in a fair manner. You want to know that your children will be financially supported and that the amount of money you will be receiving on behalf of your children or paying per the schedule is a reasonable amount.

How are 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 Modifications

The amount of child support 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 any 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.
