Looking Out for You & Your Child
Child support can be a difficult and contentious issue in a divorce. No parent wants to deny their child the aid they need, but they have to look out for their own affairs as well.

How Is Child Support Calculated?
The laws in Texas regarding child support are not as straightforward as they appear. There are very specific formulas that examine the income of both parents and the time each parent is able to spend with the child under the custody agreement.
Some factors that influence child support arrangements include:
- A parent’s financial situation and ability to pay
- The child’s special needs, such as medical care, education, etc.
- The child custody agreement
- The standard of living parents and child had before the divorce or separation
- Each parent’s own financial needs and burdens
These factors then lead to an amount of support to be paid by one parent to the other to provide for the children. Whether you are seeking support, looking to contest a support award or need help revisiting a support agreement, our lawyers are here to help.
