Determining child support can be as simple as an algebra equation, but it can get complicated when the paying parent doesn't have a regular salary.
We understand that not receiving child support when it's been ordered, or not being able to pay child support, can be stressful. At the Law Office of Carol A. Wilson, we understand Texas law regarding child support and work efficiently and productively to achieve the solution that's in the best interest of our clients and their children.
In any case involving minor children, the court will order child support. Child support comes in two forms: 1) money paid monthly, and 2) health insurance for the child. The Texas Family Code provides an equation to calculate child support and factors in cost of the child's health insurance premiums, and the total number of children a parent has.
The court is most likely to order support in an amount determined by the statute, although, in some cases, the court may vary from the statutory guidelines.
