Is Child Support Mandatory in Texas?

Biological parents have a legal duty to financially support their children until the child becomes self-sufficient or reaches the age of majority, which is 18 years in Texas. When one parent has primary custody, the other parent’s obligation is usually met through the payment of child support. Such payments are owed regardless of whether the parent with custody has the means to support the child on their own.

How is Child Support Calculated in TX?

Child support is most common in sole managing conservatorships, but it may still be required in cases of joint custody. Child support awards are determined based on the child’s needs and the income of the parent responsible for payment.

When awarding child support, judges may consider factors such as:

  1. Each parent’s earning potential
  2. Where each parent lives
  3. The child’s health and education needs
  4. The cost of daycare, special services, etc. for the child
  5. The child’s standard of living before the parents separated

Both children and parents benefit when the proper amount of support is determined and paid in a timely fashion.

What is the Minimum Child Support Payment in Texas?

In Texas, the amount of child support required is based on a percentage of the supporting parent’s monthly net resources and the number of children:

  • 1 child - 20%
  • 2 children - 25%
  • 3 children - 30%
  • 4 children - 35%
  • 5 children - 40%
  • 6+ children - Not less than the amount for 5 children
