Texas Attorney General Will Increase Maximum Guidelines Child Support June 20, 2013
The Office of the Attorney General of Texas has announced that it will use its administrative authority to increase the maximum income that can be considered in computations of guidelines child support. The previous level was $7,500.00, but now support can be based on up to $8,550.00 in “net monthly resources.” This means that, for a parent with only one child before the court, the maximum child support he or she could be ordered to pay is now $1,710.00 instead of $1,500.00.
Child support calculations are based on net monthly resources after deductions for taxes, social security, medicare, health insurance costs, and union dues. Child support can be a complicated calculation, especially for self employed persons, or parents who’s income is based on commission and bonuses.
