How is child support calculated in Texas?
The Texas court system calculates child support based on the payer’s income. However, sometimes the parties involved cannot agree on the payer’s income, as it may fluctuate with overtime earnings, commissions, bonuses, or (conversely) a layoff.
How does wage withholding work?
If the court orders child support payments, that money may be withheld from the person’s paycheck paying child support. That means that the employer of the person who pays is ordered to withhold the necessary funds.
