Child support is typically paid by the parent who does not have physical custody of the child(ren). This person is referred to as the non custodial parent. While the court can order both parents to support the child(ren), it is typically the non custodial parent who makes a monthly or bi-monthly payment to the custodial parent (the parent who has the most time with the children.)The child support payment amounts are based on the non custodial parent’s income using a standard calculation, guidelines, and fee schedule determined by the state of Texas.
