In the state of Texas, parents are considered bound by duty to provide financial support to their children. This means that non-custodial parents may be ordered to pay child support until (i.) the child is 18 years of age, or (ii.) receives a high school diploma, the later of these two events. Our legal team can answer your questions about child support and tell you more about your options.

In establishing child support, there are guidelines in place to be followed. These guidelines have to do with percentage of income and other resources. Parents required to pay child support must pay a certain percentage of their monthly income and other resources.
You can request modification of a child support order if you or your child's other parent experiences a material and substantial change in circumstances. The Texas Family Code provides for a modification of child support, under certain circumstances: i.e. loss of employment, change of conservatorship, birth of another child, increase in a parents' salary. Our Flower Mound divorce attorney can answer your questions about qualifying for a modification of child support orders or modification of health insurance orders.
