Understanding Child Support in Texas
In the state of Texas, it’s usually the non-custodial parent who pays child support. This parent spends less time with the child, and therefore, has to make the child support payments. However, each case is unique, so it’s possible that both you and your ex will need to make child support payments.
Also, the non-custodial parent can agree to pay more than what’s on the fee schedule, but they can’t pay less unless the court approves it. It’s also important to know that the custodial parent is not “off the hook” for child-related expenses. But because they are with the child most of the time, it’s assumed that their money is going directly to the child.
Here is the fee schedule that our Plano child support attorneys and the state of Texas use:
- One child: 20% of net income
- Two children: 25% of net income
- Three children: 30% of net income
- Four children: 35% of net income
