FAQS About Child Support In Texas
How long does Texas child support last?
In Texas, most children must be supported until:
- The child turns 18 or graduates from high school
- The child is married
- The child’s pre-disclosed disability is removed
- The child dies
How is the child support amount determined?
Child support amounts can vary from case to case, but Texas uses a simple calculation system to roughly estimate the child support amount. In most cases, guidelines state that one child requires 20% of net monthly income, with each additional child requiring 5% more of the net monthly income. The actual amount is determined on a case by case basis, however.
Does child support in Texas account for child disabilities?
Yes, the judge presiding over your case will take into account any disabilities or special needs that the child or children in the case may possess.
How does medical child support function?
Medical child support, like with accounting for disabilities, will have to be determined on a case by case basis. Depending on the needs of the child, a certain system will be reached between the custodial and non-custodial parents.
