Your children deserve to maintain the quality of life they enjoyed during your marriage. The parent with whom the child lives naturally incurs the highest expenses, so the non-custodial parent is typically required to pay child support.

Child Support Guidelines in Texas

The Texas child support guidelines will be applied by calculating the net monthly income of the parent required to pay support. For one child, 20 percent of the net monthly income is owed to the other parent. With two children, 25 percent of the net monthly income is required. For three children, 30 percent; for four, 40 percent; and for six children no less than 40 percent.

How is Child Support Calculated?

The net monthly income is calculated by valuing all income, including:

  • Wages
  • Salary
  • Interest
  • Dividends
  • Royalties
  • Self-employment income
  • Retirement funds
  • Pension
  • All other sources of income

Certain costs are deducted, including social security taxes, income tax, both state and federal, union dues, and the cost of the child’s health insurance.
