As a general rule, Texas law requires that the non-custodial parent provide child support to the custodial parent. The amount of child support is usually based on guidelines set by the Attorney General’s office; however, the amount can be raised or lowered depending on the particular circumstances of a case. The amount of child support under the guidelines is based upon a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s net income. The percentage varies based upon the number of children that parent is obligated to support.
