Understanding Texas Child Support Guidelines

Most states have guidelines for calculating child support payments. Texas considers the annual income of the non-custodial parent, the number of children, cost of monthly health insurance expenses, and who pays for health insurance coverage for the children. Inputting this information into the child support calculator provides a monthly payment amount for support.

Can Child Support Be Adjusted?

In some situations, the amount of child support calculated using the guidelines is not appropriate and may need to be increased or decreased. It is possible to ask that the court adjust the amount of child support payments. The court will review a variety of factors to determine whether it is appropriate to increase or decrease child support awards.

Issues the court may consider include:

  • The child’s age and needs
  • Time each parent spends with the child
  • The financial resources of each parent
  • Health insurance expenses
  • Extraordinary educational or medical expenses
  • Childcare expenses
  • Post-secondary education expenses
