How to Determine Monthly Child Support Payments in Texas

A judge will rely on the best interest of the child standard to make a child support determination. The factors that impact this decision include:

  • The age of the child
  • The physical and mental health of the child
  • The time each parent spends with the child
  • Expenses associated with childcare, health insurance, education, etc.
  • The financial wellbeing of each parent, including debts
  • Whether one parent can afford to pay child support
  • Whether the receiving parent needs child support
  • Additional expenditures for the child

Once a determination has been made, an amount is then calculated. To get an idea of what your monthly child support payment would be, refer to what the Attorney General of Texas calls the monthly child support calculator.

Child Support Modifications

If your financial circumstances have changed, you may be eligible for a child support modification. You are eligible for a child support payment modification if:

  • The child support order was established or modified more than 3 years ago
  • The monthly amount of the child support order differs by either: 20% or $100 from the amount that would be awarded
  • There has been a material or substantial change in circumstances after the order was established

Defining Material and Substantial Changes in Circumstances

Changes in circumstance that would generally permit a child support modification include:

  • The noncustodial parent's income has increased or decreased
  • The noncustodial parent is legally and financially responsible for additional children
  • The child(ren)'s medical insurance coverage has changed
  • The child(ren) live with a different parent
