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 child support payments will be. The court will look at the total gross income each party has and order one or both to pay a percentage of that income.

Percentages are based upon the amount of children the parent must support and are also listed below:

  • 1 child - 20% of income
  • 2 children - 25% of income
  • 3 children - 30% of income
  • 4 children - 35% of income
  • 5 children - 40% of income

Recent Testimonials


    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”

    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”



    “My name is Cynthia, and my family recently hired the Gould Law firm to assist us on serious allegation. Mr. Gould & his assistant, Ozzie Ahumada, have been extremely helpful. Ozzie gave us his personal cell phone and he has been there every step of the way helping get my family member out of jail. I would highly recommend the Mr. Gould and his staff for all your legal needs!!!”

From my first visit down to my very last, the office staff and the attorney was friendly and very personable while remaining professional & ethical. They answered all my question and never once led me down the wrong path, he & his office were always very accommodating and welcoming to any & all my questions. I would definitely recommend them - - my case was a civil case (employment contract). They are wonderful people and a pleasure to work with!!! Thank you so much!”
