What Are the Texas Child Support Laws?

In Texas, both parents are responsible for financially supporting their children to provide necessities like housing, food, daycare, and healthcare. A parent who does not have physical custody of a child is therefore obligated to provide a monthly payment to cover these expenses. Parents who fail to pay child support may be ordered by a judge to pay back support or may be subject to other legal sanctions, such as wage garnishment.

You and your spouse can agree on a child support payment and submit it to the court for approval. Otherwise, a support payment is generally based on a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s monthly net income. When assessing a parent’s income, courts consider wages or salary, overtime, tips, commissions or bonuses, government benefits, and investment income.

When determining child support, courts will consider:

  • Each parent’s income
  • Each parent’s earning potential
  • The number of children being supported
  • Whether the parent supports children from a previous relationship

In the event that your financial or life circumstances change significantly and your support order becomes unfair or unreasonable, you can seek a modification of the order through the courts.
