Guidelines for Child Support in Texas
One of the most important things to be aware of is the guidelines for child support in Texas. The Fetty Firm will explain all the details to our clients to ensure that they are as informed as possible. We will also explain the rights you have, whether you’re the receiver or payee of child support. There are certain caps on child support amounts in the state of Texas. The caps are the guidelines for child support. If a support order follows the guidelines, the non-custodial parent pays:
- 20% of their net income for one child
- 25% of their income for two children
- 30% of income for three children
- 35% for four children
- 40% for five children and for six or more children
The paying parent is responsible for support until the child turns 18 years old or when they graduate from high school, depending on which one comes first. At the end of the day, guidelines are simply guidelines. In the case that custodial parents come to an agreement for a different arrangement. That arrangement will then take precedence.
