Child Support in Texas

Under Texas law, both fathers and mothers are required to support their child, regardless of whether they are married, separated, or divorced. Generally, the court will order a parent that does not have primary conservatorship of the child to make child support payments to the other parent.

There are several factors that a court may consider when determining child support payments, including:

  • The age of the child
  • The financial needs of the child
  • The available resources that may be used to support the child
  • The ability of both of the parents to financially support the child
  • The cost of childcare expenses incurred by either parent
  • The amount of time each parent spends with his or her child
  • The amount of alimony paid or received
  • Whether either parent is the primary conservator of another child

The court is responsible to determine how much child support a parent must pay in Bell County, Texas. Ultimately, the amount must be seen to be in the child’s best interest. There are some established guidelines the court usually follows that help to ensure the best interest of the child is being met. The guidelines range from 20% of a parent’s net resources for one child, to 40% of those resources for five or more children.
