Texas Child Support Cases

Led by a Board Certified Family Law Specialist Lennea Cannon, and Attorneys Lori Blackwell and Yoka Larasati, our family law team offers compassionate, experienced representation for a range of child support matters, including those involving:

Child support is no insignificant matter and becomes a focus in any family law case in which minor children are involved. Under the Texas Family Code, child support calculations may vary depending on the facts and circumstances, but will generally be calculated by multiplying a paying party’s net monthly income by a percentage established by statute, which may be:

  • 20% for one child
  • 25% for two children
  • 30% for three children
  • 35% for four children
  • 40% for five children
  • At least 40% for six or more children

Additionally, Texas family will give weight in its considerations to factors such as the income of both parents (including overtime and bonus pay), a new marriage that alters available financial support for a child, custody and visitation arrangements, a child’s age and needs, existing obligations, and more.

Of course, even when support orders are established through the court, there may be circumstantial changes which warrant legal action. This may include modifications (upon substantial changes in circumstances), the need for enforcing court orders, or temporary orders – in addition to addressing changes to custody, property division, spousal support, and other family law orders.

Lawyer Consulting a Client
  • "I would highly recommend Ms. Cannon. She has such a profound knowledge of family law, she puts your fears at ease. Divorce, child custody or whatever the issue may be, Ms. Cannon will make you feel like you are her only client. Ms. Cannon represented me in a child custody issue I was having with my ex-husband. I obtained full custody (thanks to Lennea) of my daughter and the hearing could not have gone any smoother. She was prompt in responding to my emails regarding my case in a professional and truthful manner. If my rate scale is between 1 and 10, I give her an 11. I have nothing negative to say about Ms. Cannon. She is professional in every aspect and keeps you thoroughly updated on the status of your case."
