Texas, like most other states, uses a formula to determine child support obligations. It takes into account certain factors to come up with numbers that are affordable for each parent while ensuring the children's needs are met. Those factors include:

  • Where the child will live
  • Each parent's income
  • The child's needs, including health insurance, education, clothing and food

As your lawyer, we can help you understand how the formula will apply to your unique financial situation, and if there are any opportunities for deductions or additions.

When Can I Modify My Child Support Order?

Family courts in Houston need there to be a substantial change in circumstances to change a child support order. This usually occurs when one parent either receives a large increase in income or a substantial decrease in income. This can come from a raise, job loss, disability, oil and gas royalties, or a medical emergency.

The child's needs can also change, requiring a modification of support. This can include the need for increased health care spending or enrolling in a new school.
