How is child support determined?

Child support payments in Texas are calculated by a standard formula. As your lawyer, Tad Nelson explains the formula and the factors involved in determining support payments. The child support guidelines consider the net income of the non-custodial parent and the number of children. The net income of the non-custodial parent is calculated by subtracting the following from the gross income:

  • Social security taxes
  • Federal income tax
  • State income tax
  • Union dues
  • Health insurance expenses for the children

It may be possible to deviate from the guidelines, but a carefully constructed case needs to be made for any deviations from the standard guidelines. Our firm will answer any questions you may have about complications that could arise throughout the process. We also work to identify and locate hidden assets that could impact child support determinations.

Child Support Enforcement

Do you need assistance enforcing a child support order? When the parent responsible for paying support does not pay, you may bring an enforcement action to collect child support. The non-paying parent could be held in contempt of court and actions such as wage garnishment may be ordered by the court.
