I think they should moniter where the money is spent. Cause there are some crappy moms who don't spend the money on the kids only their selves and other men. U look at the kids and they are in rags. And I wonder how it goes for men who have different kids from different women? Do they pay different?

I get what you are saying but they can't do that it's a free country and if the moms want to do what they want with the money they will do it. It's wrong because I have a relative that gives child support and the kid is always with old clothing and ugly old shoes yet the judge told him he can't do nothing about it. He said he had to pay and if the mom's don't waste the money on the kids that's their problem.

One child its 20% two to three its 25% Max is 35% if i'm not wrong but you also have to include insurance if they dont get medicaid or chips then the biological father is require by texas law to provide health insure for his child...Keep in mind some ppl pay more because they make more money they look back 6 months into your paystubs... If you have no job they base it off of minimum wage... Some guys have more of their check taken away beacuse they are behind

It depends on how much the non-custodial parent is earning and the number of children that he/she has. They have to pay a certain percent of their income and the percent depends on the amount of children that they have.

And this goes for "Jenna" not just because you spend your child support on other men mean that we all do!!! How would you know on what the child support is spent on!!

you don't know how to read I never said that I have child support stupid ass. Am married and my kids come from my husband. if u read I said they should moniter the ones that spend the money on other things and not the kids. And I don't have other men. I don't believe in cheating. I love my husband. And I was making my comment cause I know some women who do that. Like I said read RIGHT before u stupidly open ur mouth. Cause u just made urself look dumb.

It's true! Who ever was deemed to pay child support from the judge must pay it! However, it is true that some parents (both guys & girls) spend the money on themselves. If for some reason you think that your child is being mistreated, stick Child Services on her! Child Abuse, which includes neglegance, emotional and physical abuse. Child support is meant to be spent on the welfare and safety of the children. It is meant to put a roof over their heads, provide them with food and clothes. Oh, and dont forget health insurance! It is also required. If you build up a case against the irresponsible parent, you can go to court and overturn the decision. They might pay you child support instead of the other way around. Must prove their a unfit parent!

System goes as follows.....1 child 20% 2 children 25% 2 or more 30% of each of your payroll checks!

What about those men u pay child support from a pervious marriage. And now get a second divorce. What happens there. Do those kids get less. Then the first marriage?

I think the 30% is equally divided among all children! Sometimes, if the judge determines, they might go as high as 35% if you have several children. Never heard of cases going higher than 35%, which i think is what state laws defines. Attorney General is responsible for sending the percentage equally among all children.

He got it right. Also the amount taken is only from 40 hours of work. You keep all your overtime but thats because taxes take most of that money anyway.

Diddo! To all those parents that know that they have to pay child support, start paying it! It is no laughing matter. You can go to jail if you are not paying it! Also, Medicaid or chips can come back an charge the person who is responsible for the child support! So remember, any money you make, start giving some part of it to your children because it all adds up. I know people that owe over $50,000 in back pay!
Always give child support in form of a check or money order! NEVER give cash. You cannot trace cash! They can come back and say that you never paid anything!
