Child Support Amount


Child Support is determined in Texas by how many children and the net pay of the absent parent.  I have listed the law for the amount of child support below.


1 – 20 percent of net pay.

2 – 25 percent of net pay.

3 – 30 percent of net pay.

4 – 35 percent of net pay


It stops at the 35 percent. It is also important if the non-custodial parent pays on other children. The child support will stop at 50 percent of pay. This means if the parent is paying support for other children or cases it could cause an issue on your support if you filed after the other parents. It is important to file as soon as possible. Some people believe support is determined by what the custodial parent needs. This is false. The custodial parent could be wealthy or poor and the support is still done by the guideline above. It is also possible to modify the support if you think the non-custodial parent now makes more money. It must be a large increase. Most places say 30 percent pay increase to modify. Are you receiving the correct child support?

New Law


Child Support laws continue to change. The most recent was the vehicle registration law. The new law in Texas will no longer allow absent parents that are behind on child support to renew the car registration. Do you feel this will make an impact?  Reports already show it has.
