Texas Family law section 154.001 mentions the application of varying percentage of income for determining the parent’s liability in child support.
- The non-custodial parent’s income is taken as the base for computing the income upon which percentage(s) as stipulated in the guidelines is applied.
- The percentage(s) will increase with every time an increase in the parent’s income is implemented.
- The child support terminates when the child completes eighteen years of age or high school education, whichever is later.
- The law does not require the parents to support the education of the child as part of the child support.
