Plano Child Support Lawyer
Any Plano Child Support Lawyer worth his/her salt will tell you that child support must be approached with the right attitude as it is central to a child’s economic well-being. Brian Andrade provides experienced and aggressive representation in the area of child support to secure the financial benefits your children deserve.
The state’s child support laws safeguard the rights and interests of the party’s children in the midst of a divorce or custody case. Under Texas law, either or both parents may be ordered to support a child until he/she turns eighteen or graduates from high school. In a majority of the cases, the individual who does not have primary possession/custody of the child is obligated to pay child support.
Unfortunate as it may sound, it is not uncommon for one parent to contest the amount of child support or refuse to pay on time or in full. When faced with this scenario, I explore and leverage all possible legal means to provide you the financial relief you seek.
In the situation where a parent appropriately challenges the amount I can work with the parent to ensure that they are not overpaying beyond the guidelines.
Calculation of child support in Texas
The amount of child support is calculated by multiplying the paying parent’s net income by a statutory percentage, as shown below:
1 child = net income x 20%
2 children = net income x 25%
3 children = net income x 30%
4 children =net income x 35%
5 children = net income x 40%
For six or more children, the percentage is raised by another five percent or more till it reaches 50 percent.
In the event that the paying parent’s net income exceeds $8,500 per month, the child support calculations are applicable only to the first $8,500, and after that, additional support may be ordered by the court only if the proven needs of the child necessitate such support.
