The Texas Attorney General’s Office announced the new Texas child support cap earlier this year.
Effective September 1, 2019, the cap on net resources to which the statutory child support guidelines apply is raised from $8,550 to $9,200.
This cap is updated every six years to adjust for inflation.
This adjustment to the cap will affect 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.
