In Texas, the parent required to pay child support is determined by the amount of time that each parent spends with the child. Typically, the custodial parent (the one whom the child spends the most time with) receives support payments from the non-custodial parent. In some cases, the court might rule that both parents support the child.
The payment amount is based on a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s income. There are child support guidelines that help courts determine what is owed to the custodial parent each month. The law assumes that this money will be spent directly on the needs of the child.
