How Does Child Support Work in Texas?

Fortunately, child support is fairly simple in Texas. If a custodial parent needs help providing for their child's basic needs, they can request child support from the non-custodial parent. Child support cases often occur in the context of a divorce or paternity case, but they can happen under other circumstances as well.

Who is the Obligor in Child Support?

The parent responsible for paying support is called the "obligor." The court bases the amount of financial assistance the obligor owes on their net monthly income. Net monthly income amounts to an obligors total earnings per month, minus:

  • Federal income taxes;
  • State income taxes;
  • Social Security taxes;
  • Union dues; and
  • Health insurance expenses for the child.

If the obligor is providing assistance for one child, they can expect to pay 20% of their net monthly income to the custodial parent in child support. That figure increases to 25%, 30%, 35%, and 40% for each extra child involved in the case (up to five children). If the case involves six or more children, the obligor must pay a minimum of 40% of their net monthly income.

Paying for child support can be a significant financial burden for the obligor and enable a child to receive the resources they need to thrive.
