Texas Child Support

| Oct 20, 2010 | Divorce |

Child support in Texas is largely determined by the Child Support Guidelines in the Texas Family Code.  It is typically calculated by multiplying the appropriate paying percentage according to the number of children the obligor has and the paying parent’s net income.

When the child turns 18 or graduates high school the child support is over.  If the paying parent does not pay, then he or she can be hit with enormous penalties and even face time in jail.
