Change in Texas Maximum Child Support Cap, Effective September 1, 2013

There has been a change in Texas divorce law in September, 2013. Under Texas law, there is a cap in the monthly net resources used when calculating child support. Prior to September, 2013, the cap in the monthly net resources was $7,500.00 per month. Beginning September 1, 2013, the child support cap increased to $8,550.00 per month. Depending on the number of children involved, the monthly net resources are then multiplied by a percentage for the number of children a parent has a duty to support. This change will affect all cases filed after September 1, 2013, in addition to cases that are pending as of September 1, 2013.
