Our firm brings significant knowledge of Texas family laws to help clients across Conroe, Montgomery County, and the surrounding areas. We work diligently to provide our clients with effective child support agreements, modifications, and enforcement proceedings.

Should You Hire An Attorney For Child Support?

Texas Family law courts will apply the child support guidelines to your information and determine the exact number and determine what is in the best interests of the child. The court order will then tell the parent who pays – how much they need to pay you and how often. You can hire a lawyer to help determine the financial decisions you need to calculate a child support obligation for your ex and visitation.

If you are seeking child support, do not hesitate to call us at (936) 246-2020 or contact us online to schedule a consultation.

Personalized Representation for Child Support Concernschild in Conroe, TX

In many cases, during divorce, child support is granted to a custodial parent, and non-custodial parents are required to pay support to help provide for their shared child. Support payments are legally binding, and they must be made on a pre-determined schedule.

These payments help provide for basic expenses, such as food, clothing, medical needs, insurance, and education.

At the Law Office of Denise Norman, we help parents:

  • Modify existing divorce decrees to reflect life changes affecting either parent
  • Initiate enforcement proceedings to recover past due child support
  • Establish court orders for payment of child support

We stand ready to assist you in your time of need, and we always encourage parents to seek our representation whenever a family issue may arise.

How Does Texas Calculate Child Support?

Texas has a guideline set in place that helps people calculate child support. The amount of support paid depends solely on the number of children the couple had together:

  • One child - 20% of the noncustodial parent's average monthly net income
  • Two children - 25% of the noncustodial parent's average monthly net income
  • Three children - 30% of the noncustodial parent's average monthly net income
  • Four children - 35% of the noncustodial parent's average monthly net income
  • Five children - 40% of the noncustodial parent's average monthly net income

If you happen to have six or more children, then the noncustodial parent will not exceed the 40% mark.

Do You Have to Pay Child Support if You Have 50/50 Custody in Texas?

It's sporadic that a 50/50 agreement doesn't involve child support in Texas because both parents rarely earn the same income.

So if you earn a higher income, the judge will resort to an example like, "child support is x amount, high-earner, based on your income, while low-earner, your child support is X amount based on your income. So it is going to offset, or high-earner going to have you pay low-earner, vice-versa."

How Long Do You Have to Pay Child Support in the State of Texas?

Child support in Texas will end once the child is either 18 years of age, or graduates from high school. Still, the Texas Family Code is responsible for governing the tenure of support, so it's important to discuss with our attorneys what your best options are and what rights you have to work with.

How to File for Back Child Support in Texas

If the noncustodial parent has not made their payments for support it may be time to file for back child support. While no case is identical, the general rule of thumb for the state of Texas is that you may aim for approximately four years of payments. You may be able to get more if you are able to prove that the noncustodial parent purposely avoided paying. With the help of our child support lawyer, you can fight for the money you are owed.
