How Child Support is Calculated in Texas
The court will examine many different factors when making a decision regarding child support, including but not limited to:
- Whether or not alimony is being ordered in the divorce
- Physical custody arrangements
- Cost of child care
- The age of the child
- Any extenuating financial needs of the child
- Both parents' financial situations
- Availability of financial resources
- Time spent with the child
Can I Modify a Child Support Order?
Court orders in family law cases are not meant to be set in stone. As time goes on, these orders may need to change to reflect new realities in your family's needs and circumstances. If you have questions about pursuing modification of your child support arrangement, whether you are the custodial or non-custodial parent, speak with our Dallas family lawyer.
