Things to Know About Child Support in Texas
When you visit The Fetty Firm, we’ll go over the details of Texas child support law, as well as going over your rights as the receiver or payee of child support. Generally, there are certain caps to child support amounts in Texas. The child support caps are known as child support guidelines. In the state of Texas, a non-custodial parent pays:
- 20 percent of net income (income from all sources) for one child
- 25 percent of income for two children
- 30 percent of income for four children
- 35 percent for four children
- 40 percent for five children
- 40 percent or more for six or more children
Additionally, the custodial parent is responsible for child support until the child in question turns 18 years old or when he graduates from high school, whatever happens first. Of course, guidelines are merely guidelines. If both parents can come to an agreement on an arrangement, then that arrangement we’ll take precedence. Moreover, here are some ways The Fetty Firm can help clients:

- If you are in need of enforcing the child support orders
