Georgetown Texas Child Support Lawyer

Call 512-610-6199 for Help with Child Support Disputes in Texas

In Texas, determinations of child support obligations are made primarily according to statutory mathematical formulas. These formulas are somewhat complex, can vary in how they are used, and can be difficult to understand. Working with an experienced family law attorney will provide you with a better understanding of your child support obligation and what, if any, special circumstances may influence its calculation.

At Powers Kerr & Rashidi, PLLC, we are highly experienced in assisting clients with navigating child support matters. We work with individuals who are going through divorces, involved in paternity suits, and seeking post-decree modifications and order enforcement.

Child Support Guidelines in Texas

The standard calculation for your child support payment is based on your gross income from all sources less your Social Security withholding, your federal income tax withholding, and your medical insurance premium (for children only), among other deductions. The resulting amount, labeled as your net resources, is then multiplied by a percentage attributed to the number of children you have to determine your child support obligation.

The above Texas child support guideline calculations, however, are not ironclad, and arguments can be made to adjust a support obligation based on child needs and the financial situations of both parents. Additionally, child support orders can potentially be modified if employment circumstances for a parent change, or if a child's needs have changed in some significant way. To learn more about how child support is calculated in Texas, and how our attorneys can help you navigate support obligations, call 512-610-6199 or contact us today to discuss your situation.
