CALCULATING CHILD SUPPORT IN TEXAS

| Dec 23, 2014 | Family Law

Great Online Tool for Parents with Questions about Child Support

One of the most common issues I am contacted about is child support. The question I am often asked is “how much child support will I have to pay?” or “how much child support will I receive?”. Generally, speaking the amount of child support a Court will award follows a statutory formula. The formula is based on the monthly net resources of the parent that will be paying child support, the number of children that will be subject to the order for child support, and the number of other children the obligor has a duty to support.
