Child support in Texas is calculated using a set of statutory guidelines. The guidelines take into account the net monthly income of the parent who will be required to pay support (the obligor) less any allowable deductions, such as income taxes and children’s health insurance, if applicable.
It is essential that accurate information is entered into the child support calculator to obtain a fair order. Be sure that you have an experienced Dallas child support attorney who knows the law and has the ability to protect your interests. At The Linder Firm, we represent parents on both sides of these cases. Our goal is always to obtain a child support agreement that provides the most benefit to our clients.

In addition to understanding how the guidelines work and the information required to obtain a fair order, it is important to have complete and accurate income information. Attorney Linder has extensive experience with these types of cases, and he knows how to approach these matters in a way that ensures all eligible income is included in the calculation process.
We also represent clients in child support modification and enforcement proceedings. If there has been a substantial change in income — either an increase or decrease — for the obligor, either parent can seek to have the original order modified to better reflect the current financial situation. If the obligor is not making payments as ordered by the court, we can help you take the necessary steps to petition the court to enforce the order.
