In Texas, we have the Office of the Attorney General that’s promulgated guidelines for child support. Most of the time in Navarro and surrounding counties the judge is going to follow the attorney general guidelines. But in certain instances depending on special needs of the child or special activities the children may be involved in the court may increase or decrease the amount of child support but usually we’re going to follow what’s promulgated by our Texas attorney general.
