Child support is a form of monetary payment that is made on a monthly basis
by one parent to another parent. The child support payments are supposed
to be utilized for the child's day-to-day needs and must be paid until
the child reaches the adult age of 18, unless there is a change of circumstances,
such as a loss of job or a substantial decrease in wages.
Child Support Payments & the Number of Children
In the state of Texas, child support payments will be based upon the total
gross income of each parent and also the number of children the parents
have together. The more children the you have together, the more the court-ordered
