What Are the Texas Child Support Guidelines?
In Texas, a minor has a statutory right to parental support. Child support is informed by the Texas family code support guidelines and is calculated based on a percentage of the paying parent’s net monthly income. However, because courts are granted discretion in establishing and enforcing child support obligations, practices may vary by court, by judge, or by the circumstances of each case.
Your support order could vary from guidelines for several reasons, including:
- Special or extraordinary educational, healthcare, or other expenses of the parties or of the child
- Other factors related to the obligor’s ability to pay—alimony payments, travel costs to maintain the relationship with the child, and more
- Educational expenses past age 18 if the child is enrolled in a qualified educational institution or program, and meeting certain requirements
Support order guidelines in Texas also address custody and visitation. A unique custody arrangement could mean a unique support arrangement, as well.
