There are a variety of factors taken into consideration, including the proposed parenting plan and how much time the child will spend with each parent. Our top priority is to provide you with compassionate guidance and when necessary, aggressive legal representation to secure the optimum outcome of your child support case.
Child support can be a hard topic to discuss your your child's other parent. If you're facing child support issues in McKinney, please contact our child support attorney online or by calling (469) 646-7763 now. Proudly serving McKinney and the surrounding areas.
How Is Child Support Calculated in Texas?
In Texas, a few factors are considered in the calculation of child support, including:
- Income and earning capacity of each parent
- The job and education level of each parent
- The amount of time spent with each parent
- The health and age of each parent
- The child's age and needs;
- The expenses for a child for education beyond secondary school;
- Special or extraordinary educational, health care, or other expenses of the parties or child
- The cost of travel in order to exercise possession of and access to the child;
Many TX parents refuse to pay the amount which they owe, while others feel that they are being asked to pay too much.
Whatever the case may be, our child support lawyer has experience handling all types of unique situations.

How Far Behind on Child Support Before Jail in Texas?
A parent can be arrested in Texas for failing to pay child support. The offense is called "criminal nonsupport."
The charge can increase to a criminal felony and up to two years in prison when child support in Texas hasn't been paid in two years, or the amount owed reaches $10,000 or more.
The court may also issue fines of up to $500 for every nonpayment, file liens against their assets, and order the other parent to pay your attorney and legal fees.
Child support usually ends when the last child turns 18 or graduates from high school, whichever is later. Suppose you owe back child support (arrearages). In that case, payments will continue even after the child turns 18–until the debt plus interest is paid in full.
The statute of limitations for seeking back child support when a court order is already in place is ten years from the child's 18th birthday. If a claim isn't filed by the deadline, any recovery for back child support in Texas may be denied.
