FIGURING OUT A FAIR CHILD SUPPORT AMOUNT FOR YOU AND YOUR EX

Child support orders are court orders that mandate monthly payments for the care of a child. These orders are created according to detailed guidelines and formulas, including the number of children and non-custodial parent’s monthly net income. Generally speaking, child support payments are taken out of the non-custodial parent’s income after a few other monthly payments are deducted as well:

  • Federal income tax
  • State income tax
  • Social Security tax
  • Union dues, if applicable
  • Health insurance coverage expenses for the non-custodial parent’s children

GENERAL TEXAS CHILD SUPPORT GUIDELINES

As mentioned above, child support payments are determined according to the non-custodial parent’s monthly net income. Below are rough estimates of how much of the non-custodial parent’s monthly income will be set aside per number of children:

  • One child – 20 percent
  • Two children – 25 percent
  • Three children – 30 percent
  • Four children – 35 percent
  • Five children – 40 percent
  • Six or more children – >40 percent

These numbers can give you an idea as to how much you’ll have to pay every month for child support depending on how many children you have.

If the non-custodial parent already has children they are legally required to support, then these percentages may be reduced. An experienced family law attorney will be able to review your circumstances to negotiate a fair child support order or ensure your order is aligned with the statute.
