Depending on the state you are in, this financial obligation continues until the child has reached the age of majority, which is often 18 or 21. Generally speaking, Houston child support law dictates that payment is required until the child is 18. However, this number can be influenced by an agreement between the parents, the child’s marriage, child’s schooling, or other factors.

When two parents divorce, the parent without primary custody is often required to pay child support.  Calculating child support is not always easy since you have to take into account the entire income of the non-custodial parent, the number of children the non-custodial parent has, and more. You can also have your child support payments stopped or changed under certain circumstances, such as because of marriage, job loss or promotion, or disability. It is not uncommon to have a lot of questions about child support payments as they relate to your particular case.
