Child support obligations in Texas are never pleasant for a parent to discuss because deep and painful emotional components usually surround the child support order.
Roughly speaking, modification of child support obligations are primarily controlled by the Texas Family Code. Under the Texas Family Code, the child support obligation can be modified if the “the circumstances of the child or a person affected by the order have materially and substantially changed” and if the changes amount to either 20% or $100 per month. While there are other considerations involved in child support obligations, this is where most modifications begin when a court is involved.
