The Texas Attorney General’s Office announced the new Texas child support cap earlier this year.
Effective September 1, 2019, Texas law raises the cap on net resources to which the statutory child support guidelines apply from $8,550 to $9,200.
Texas law requires that the Texas Attorney General’s Office update this cap every six years to adjust for inflation.
This adjustment to the cap affects divorces involving high net income couples filed after September 1, 2019, as well as any other child support modifications or cases filed after that date.
