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 is calculated after the court evaluates a variety of factors pertaining to each spouse and the child.

These factors include the following, and more:

  • The income of the paying parent
  • The cost of health insurance
  • Any pre-existing child support obligations

Other child support factors not included in the child support calculations:

These other factors are included in “the support of your child”.

  • 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, by statute, the supporting parent is obligated to keep up child support payments until the child turns 18 years of age or until the child graduates high school, whichever happens first. In some cases, parents will continue child support payments to assist with college, but these are only if both parents agree to the payment.
