Child support is money a parent pays to help with the cost of raising a child, such as the cost of food, housing, clothing, school supplies, daycare and activities. Texas child support law also provides for parents to participate in paying for the medical and dental care for their children.
Texas law establishes general child support guidelines. Support amounts are generally based on a percentage of the noncustodial parent’s after-tax income. Burgfechtel Law Offices’ attorney, R. Jeffrey Burgfechtel, will help you understand the basis of these guidelines and how they apply to you.
