Modifying Child Support in Texas

Child support is a monetary amount paid by the non-custodial parent for the care, support, and education of their children. Child support is based on a percentage of their net income. Each parent must provide documentation of their income when filing their initial pleading or motion documents.

In some situations, an original child support agreement no longer accurately reflects the financial realities of the child’s parents. In these situations, it is necessary to modify the terms of the original child support agreement. Our Sugar Land Child Support Modification Attorney can assist you in modifying your agreement to better reflect your needs.

Criteria for Modification

The state must notify parents of the right to request a review of cases every three years to see if modification is the right move to make.

Modification of child support in Texas can be based upon:

  • A substantial increase or decrease of the income of one of the parents
  • A substantial change in the child’s needs
  • Receipt of public assistance
  • Change of cost of living for either parent
  • Significant medical expenses of the child
  • A substantial increase or decrease in the cost of health care
  • Increase or decrease of child care costs
  • Emancipation of a child

Seek Modifications to Your Support Order

Child support can be increased or decreased, but only with a new court order. For example, if the parent paying child support loses his job, child support may decrease. If you need to change the amount of child support, you should file a modification lawsuit right away, even if the AG cannot help. Always let the AG know if you lose your job. The state must notify parents of the right to request a review of cases every three years to see if modification is the right move to make. At Jamie Jordan , PLLC, we can assist you throughout the child support modification process.
