Child Support

Texas law allows and encourages parents to come to their own agreement about child support if possible. The agreement will be in the form of a written contract that is then submitted to the court for approval. If the court finds the agreement is appropriate and fair, the agreement will become the court’s final child support order.

For those parents who cannot agree, the state has established guidelines courts are charged with using when determining which parent pays support to the other and the amount of the support payment. When considering a child support order, the court takes into account the following factors:

  • The income of each parent.
  • How many children there are.
  • Whether or not the parent the court determines should pay has other children for whom child support is being paid.

Generally, the non-custodial parent pays the custodial parent. The law also requires the paying parent to provide for the children’s health and dental insurance. Other factors may be considered such as:

  • Child care costs that are considered unusual.
  • Medical expenses not covered by insurance.
  • Other needs of the child or children not taken into account by the guidelines.
  • The amount of time the child spends with each parent.
