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.
