The State of Texas has issued statutory guidelines regarding the amount of money a party may be ordered to pay to support a child. The guidelines are based upon your monthly income and the number of children before the court. The guidelines also take into account a party’s legal obligation to support other children not before the court. The statutory guidelines are presumed to be in the best interest of the child(ren) absent evidence presented to the court that rebuts this presumption. Thus, a court is authorized to find factors exist that warrant ordering more or less child support depending on the circumstances of the case. Ultimately each situation is unique, so meeting with an attorney will give you a much better idea of what you can expect in your particular case.
