Determining Factors for Child Support

Guidelines for Child Support in Texas

Every state in the nation has its own guidelines for determining the amount of child support. In Texas, child support is determined based on factors outlined in the Texas Family Code § 154.121. These guidelines include, but are not limited to:

  • The best interests of the child
  • Each parent's ability to contribute support of the child
  • The age and needs of the child
  • The amount of time each parent has been in possession of the child or has had access to the child
  • The amount of the paying parent's net resources
  • Child care expenses incurred by either party in order to maintain gainful employment
  • If either party has the managing conservatorship or actual physical custody of another child
  • The amount of alimony or spousal maintenance being paid or received by a party
  • Educational expenses beyond secondary school
  • Provision for health care insurance and payment of uninsured medical expenses
  • Debt or debt service assumed by either party

These are only a few of the determining factors for child support in Texas. In order to actually win a fair child support order, you need the representation of an experienced Brownwood divorce attorney. The Law Office of Nita Meador can provide the services that you need.
