I’d like to talk about some common misconceptions that people have about divorce and children in Texas. I am going to start with the most common misconception, how child support is calculated in Texas? People frequently come in to me and say that they have already agreed on the child support, they calculated it, they know what it is. It is my job to make sure that they understand what the process is, I need to help them determine if the the amount they came up with is the amount that would be calculated according to Texas law.
People use the internet, they’ll go on the internet and they know it’s 20 percent if they have one child. I am going to show you how that process works so you will not get mislead. Child support in Texas is according to a formula except in very unusual circumstances. No matter what judge you’re standing in front of in Texas or you are meeting any other person who makes a legal determination in Texas, the calculation is going to be the same way.
You have to start with the chart that the Attorney General of Texas puts out each year. There’s a chart that they put out, that’s easily accessible on the internet. To find that chart is not the problem, it’s easy to find the chart, you should start with the chart. You’ve got the chart in front of you, it tells you the money a person should pay for children support.
You have the chart in front of you. The next thing you do is to calculate the average monthly earnings before anything is taken out of the person who will be paying child support. If the person makes $2, 000 a month before anything is taken out, you can start with $2, 000. You have the chart in front of you, on the left, you will find the figure gross income $2, 000, you will see the other amounts as you follow along to the right of the chart.
You can see an amount, it is deducted for Medicare, you can see an amount deducted for withholding, you can see an amount deducted for Social Security taxes, it doesn’t matter what has been taken out of the paycheck, those are the amounts that the state of Texas allows a person to deduct.
You will come up with a net income for child support purposes. If a person is providing health insurance for children, you can deduct that amount from the net income. You have a net income for child support purposes. If the person is paying for one child, it’s 20%, if they’re paying for two children, it is 25%, it goes up from there.
If a person is court obligated to pay child support for any children of any other relationship, the formula can be more complicated than it seems. It is very important to have a knowledgeable person such as a lawyer to guide you through this process.
Whether you are paying or receiving, you will be sure that you are using the calculations correctly to come up with a right amount. In my law office, we will go over that with you, we’re happy to discuss that with you, we want to be sure that any decision you’re making is using the right information.
