Child/ Spousal Support
Child support in Texas follows guidelines set forth in the Texas Family Code. The monthly amount of support is based on the obligor’s net monthly income (money received after taxes). Child support is based on a percentage of the net monthly income starting at 20 percent for one child and increasing with more children. There are maximum amounts set by the Texas Family Code.

Can I get alimony?
Although getting temporary spousal support (while the divorce is pending) is very common, it is unusual to get post-divorce alimony. You can get post-divorce alimony only if you qualify and an attorney’s advice would be necessary.
