Texas courts follow fixed child support guidelines
for the amount of child support awarded in divorce cases problems they face are complicated.
Texas guidelines follow a flat percentage model, based on a percentage of the noncustodial parent’s income and the number of children they are supporting.
If you have no lawyer, or you have an ordinary lawyer, the court will apply these guidelines to your case. But the guidelines are just that, a set of recommendations. A knowledgeable lawyer can show the court the amount best suited to your financial circumstances.
