A child support order may be initially rendered in a Divorce or a Suit to Establish the Parent-Child Relationship, which is a custody case between unmarried parties. Below is list of frequently asked questions about child support.

HOW MUCH WILL CHILD SUPPORT BE?
Child support is determined based on the income of the parent paying support. Child support is calculated by taking that parent’s gross monthly income, subtracting social security taxes, federal income taxes for a single person claiming one deduction, union dues, and health insurance coverage for the child. This amount is the parent’s net income.
