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.

Child Support Modifications & Enforcements

Do you already have a child support order in place that the other parent refuses to adhere to? We can help you to take steps to pursue enforcement with the help of a judge in McKinney, TX. 

Or perhaps the circumstances in your life have changed and you need to modify your child support agreement. We have helped many clients navigate the complexities of the family court and our child support lawyers can help you do the same.

How Far Behind on Child Support Before Jail in Texas?

In Texas, failing to pay for a year or more, owing a sum equal to one year's worth of payments, or ignoring court orders regarding child support can all lead to criminal charges. 

Unpaid child support can become a criminal felony if the amount owed is $10,000 or more and the noncustodial parent has not paid for two years.

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.
