A battle involving custody of children is one of the most trying and emotional experiences you will ever endure.

Child support in Texas is determined largely through the use of statutory guidelines, which base calculations on the net resources of the parent who will be paying child support also referred to as the obligor. If the obligor has children from only one relationship, the amount of support will be calculated based on a percentage of the obligor's net income and the number of children they have:

  • One child: 20%
  • Two children: 25%
  • Three children: 30%
  • Four children: 35%
  • ive or more children: 40%

If the obligor has children from other relationships, calculating the amount of child support becomes more complex and will involve other considerations.

There are additional factors that the court may consider when determining child support payments, based on the guidelines in Family Code Chapter 154.123. Some of the other factors the judge may consider include:

  • The child's age and needs
  • The ability of both parents to financially support the child
  • Any financial resources that are available to support the child
  • Each parent's amount of time spent with and access to the child
  • The cost of child care expenses incurred by either parent in order to maintain employment
  • Whether either parent has physical custody of another child
  • The amount of alimony or spousal support being paid or received by either parent

Child custody

The most important issue in any divorce involving children is the care, custody, and control of those children after the divorce is over, and what type of contact the children will have with the parent with whom the children do not primarily reside. Children are society’s greatest future resource, and this is why the Texas Family Code uses the term “conservator” for the people who have custodial and/or possessory rights to a child.

Texas courts tend to favor arrangements that involve joint custody, often with one parent awarded primary physical custody and the other parent awarded visitation/parenting time and typically ordered to pay  child support.

The Family Code of Texas is used by the court to determine child custody arrangements. Depending on certain factors, including (but not exclusive of) both parents' finances, ages of children, health, etc., legal rights and responsibilities will be determined for both parents, including:

  • Where the child will live the majority of the time (primary residential/physical custody)
  • Making decisions regarding education, medical care, religion (legal custody)
