Under Texas law, the non-custodial parent generally pays a monthly payment to the custodial parent of a minor child until the child is 18 years of age. The child support guidelines are used to calculate the amount of child support to be paid.
The main factors in determining the amount of child support are the non-custodial parent’s gross income, the number of children, and the percentage of time the non-custodial parent has access to the child.
There will be times when it is necessary to modify a court order for child support. If the minor child’s circumstances have changed, or the parents of the minor child circumstances have changed, modification may be necessary.
