How Does Child Support Work in Texas?
Child support cases will differ depending on the state you live in. In the state of Texas, the custodial parent receives child support payments from the non-custodial parent. Child support payments will be determined by the court based on the best interests of the child. Some of the factors that the court will take into consideration when determining child support are:
- The child’s physical and emotional needs.
- Each parent’s plan for the child.
- The relationship between the parents.
- The parenting skills & experience of each parent.
- Who will be the child’s primary caregiver.
- The child’s preference. (If he or she is age 12 or older)
- If there are multiple children involved.
- Any reports of child abuse.
Enforcement And Modification Of Texas Child Support
Once a child support order is in place, it can be modified at a later date if the circumstances change. There could be major issues that arise with a child support order to where the court will need to change the order. An example would be if the noncustodial parent fails to make the required payments. There could also be a drastic change in income to where a child support modification is needed. When dealing with a modification, you will need to have a family law attorney help you navigate the entire process.
