Understanding Child Support in Killeen

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 child 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.

How Is Child Support Determined in Texas?

A court order for child support may be challenged if either party thinks that the amount to be paid is unfair. You can present a case to the court that the payment should either increase or decrease.

The court will review a number of factors, including:

  • The age of the child
  • The needs of the child
  • Childcare expenses
  • Alimony payments
  • Financial resources and debts
  • The time the child spends with each parent
  • Legal custody
  • Education expenses
