Factors Used to Determine Child Support

Some states, including Texas, use a standard guideline to determine how much child support should be paid. This guideline is used by the judge in family court if you and your spouse (or the other parent of your child) cannot come to an agreement. The child support law uses percentages of both parent's income to calculate a fair amount. In most cases, the non-custodial parent will be responsible for making child support payments to the custodial parent.

A few of the other factors taken into consideration include:

  • Parent's financial situation
  • Child's special needs
  • Education needs of each child
  • Education and earning capacity of each parent
  • Tax consequences of each parent
