Ensuring Your Child Has the Resources to Grow Up Healthy & Happy
An important thing to remember during any divorce proceeding is that while the two people in the relationship are parting ways as partners, the continuing responsibilities of parenthood are not negotiable. When a client is in the process of negotiating child support, it is important that the amount be fair to both parties – the custodial parent should have the help they require to pay for the child’s day to day needs, and the noncustodial parent should not be paying so much that they cannot support themselves. At The Law Office of Rob Biggers, I work tirelessly to ensure that my clients’ children are taken care of properly.

Child Support Guidelines
In the state of Texas, there are several guidelines that dictate what the courts can expect of the noncustodial parent in terms of child support. There are sometimes arguments to be made that children should receive an amount above these caps – claims called “above guideline support” – that seek to do things like meet the needs of children with mental or physical disabilities, or help children maintain lifestyles to which they have grown accustomed.
The guidelines for these caps are as follows:
- One child: 20% of the noncustodial parent’s net income
- Two children: 25%
- Three children: 30%
- Four children: 35%
- Five children: 40%
- Six or more children: 40%+
