How Are Child Support Payment Calculated in Texas?

Texas law has set guidelines for establishing the amount of child support that one parent will pay to the other. The payment amount can be calculated by using the Texas Family Code after the court evaluates a variety of factors pertaining to each spouse and the child. In special circumstances, the court will look at specific needs of the children and calculate child support with that in mind.

These factors include:

  • Each parent’s income
  • The cost of health insurance
  • Number of children before the court
  • Any pre-existing child support obligations

The court may also consider other factors that fall outside the state’s support calculation guidelines.

These may include:

  • The cost of extracurricular activities, such as school or athletic activities
  • Automobile costs when the child reaches 16
  • College costs

How Long Do I Have to Pay Child Support?

In Texas, the supporting parent is obligated to keep up child support payments until the child turns 18 years old/or until the child graduates from high school, whichever happens later
