How Is Child Support Calculated In Texas?
Texas law provides guidelines for child maintenance or support arrangements. The law generally requires the parent who is ordered to pay child support, the obligor, to pay a minimum of 20 percent of his or her net monthly income for one child. Income limits apply and special needs of the child should also be considered.
With each additional child, the percentage may be raised by 5 percent until it reaches 50 percent. In certain situations, the application of these guidelines can be altered. It is important to work with a skilled attorney like Ms. Albano when navigating the child support process to help reach a fair result.

Is Your Child Support Order Outdated?
In certain circumstances, an existing child support arrangement or order may need to be revisited. Has your financial situation, or that of the other parent, changed significantly? Have the needs of your child changed? If there has been a substantial change in your situation, you may be entitled to a child support modification. Working with a skilled and knowledgeable attorney like Ms. Albano can be of great benefit when you need help obtaining a modification.
