Denton County Child Support Lawyer

Why Hire a Lewisville Divorce Attorney?

Child support is an important part of any divorce case. If you are looking to get a divorce or are already divorced, you need a Flower Mound & Lewisville family law attorney with the knowledge and experience to win the amount of child support that you need. You may be able to agree upon the amount of support with your spouse, but if you are not, your support order must be entered by a family law judge.

Haugen Law Firm, P.C. can help you by building a strong case to establish your income, your spouse's income, and the proven needs of your child so that a fair amount of support is ordered.

Calculating Child Support in Texas

Child support is calculated using guidelines found in Texas Family Code § 154.125. When an obligor's net resources are no more than $7,500 per month, the guidelines for child support are as follows:

  • 1 child - 20% of the obligor's net resources
  • 2 children - 25% of the obligor's net resources
  • 3 children - 30% of the obligor's net resources
  • 4 children - 35% of the obligor's net resources
  • 5 children - 40% of the obligor's net resources
  • 6 or more children - Not less than the amount for 5 children

If the obligor's net monthly resources exceed $7,500, the percentages above will be applied to the obligor's income up to $7,500. The court will then determine any additional support based on the obligor's additional income and the proven needs of the child.
