Child support is calculated in accordance with the Attorney General guidelines.
Child support is determined by the non-custodial parents net income. The first child is calculated at 20% and increases for each additional child.
1st child: 20%
2nd child: 25%
3rd child: 30%
4th child: 35%
If a parent fails to pay child support, a court can order a parent to be placed in jail for up to six months for contempt of court. The Office of the Attorney General of Texas can take several measures to enforce a child support order, including but not limited to; filing a lien on real property; suspending the parent’s driver license; wage garnishment; and sending the case to court.
If the parent responsible for paying child support income changes more than $100, the parent receiving payments can request the court to modify the payments.
