Child Support FAQs

Texas Family Code Section 154.001 states that a court order may require the non-custodial parent to pay child support until the child reaches 18 or graduates from high school, whichever comes later. This is done solely for the benefit of the child and supports their needs.

When calculating child support, the court will apply child support “Guidelines,” which are law-based. These Guidelines set a basic minimum amount of child support. But the court can deviate from these Guidelines after considering several factors such as income, current employment, etc.

The Guidelines are “presumed to be reasonable, and an order of support conforming to the guidelines is presumed to be in the best interest of the child.”

Texas law provides the following Guideline calculations:

  • One Child= 20% Of Net Monthly Income
  • Two Children = 25% Of Net Monthly Income
  • Three Children = 30% Of Net Monthly Income
  • Four Children = 35% Of Net Monthly Income
  • Five Children = 40% Of Net Monthly Income
  • Six Children = No Less Than 40% Of Net Monthly Income

It's important to note that under Texas law, Guideline calculations are applied to a select portion of the obligor's Net Monthly Income regardless of how much the actual Net Monthly Income may be. However, tthere is a cap under Texas law that limits teh total amount the obligator will be required to pay. Speak with an attorney to determine your specific amount.

There is no correlation between support and custody. Child support refers to the financial support of a child for their benefit. Custody refers to the physical guardianship between a parent or guardian and the child. Typically, one parent has custody of the child or children in question, but occasionally custody is shared.
