Ensuring appropriate child support obligations benefits both parents and their children. Children deserve to have all of their financial needs met. The parent receiving child support payments deserves help paying the costs associated with raising a child. The paying parent benefits from appropriately set child support levels that allow him or her to maintain the financial stability of his or her household.
How Is Child Support Determined In Texas?
Texas uses a formula to determine child support levels. Various factors, including both parents' incomes and certain other expenses, are entered into the formula. The courts are generally reluctant to allow any deviation from the outcome of the formula.
While the state uses a formula to determine child support levels, it is still a smart move to work with an attorney who understands how the formula is applied, what factors are considered, and how to secure or defend against any deviation from the child support formula.
Modifications To Child Support
Times change. People get better jobs. Other financial issues can create a material and substantial change in circumstances that would merit a modification of child support.
