How Is Child Support Calculated?
When you are involved in a dispute regarding child support, it is very important that you work with experienced and skilled Texas family law attorneys who will fight to protect your rights. Texas child support guidelines consider:
- Your income
- Your child’s other parent’s income
- How many children you have
- How much time you have for the children
- Extraordinary expenses, which usually do not include the cost of extracurricular activities in which your child is involved
Your other expenses will generally not be taken into account, with the possible exception of:
- Day care costs
- Medical insurance costs
- Medical expenses not covered by insurance
As parents, we understand how important it is to you to know that your children will be provided for and protected to the fullest extent possible despite divorce or parental separation. Learn more about the basics of child support payments in Texas.
