How is Child Support Awarded in Texas?

Child support is determined according to statutory guidelines set by the number of children the payer of support is obligated to support, and by the payer's financial resources. Child support is paid to the parent with physical custody of the child. In some cases, both parents are obligated to pay support; the support obligation of one parent will be offset against the obligation of the other, and the person who owes more support will pay the difference to the other parent.
