Child support is an issue that typically accompanies Divorce proceedings involving children, Suits Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCRs), and Suits to Adjudicate Parentage (Paternity Suits).  The parties to a suit concerning child support can agree who will pay/receive child support, as well as the amount of the payment. If the parties cannot agree, the Texas Family Code guidelines for child support will control.

Texas child support guidelines state that child support is a fixed percentage of the payor's net monthly income. The payor's tax returns, pay stubs and other financial information will be taken into account to determine the amount of the child support payment. Whether you are seeking child support or think you may have to pay child support, the attorneys at ALSTON & ENGELHAUPT, PLLC can assist you in calculating the correct child support payment.
