Texas law requires all employers to follow a wage garnishment order, which is how all child support payments must be made. In wage garnishment, an owing parent’s child support payments are deducted directly from his paycheck and transferred to the custodial parent. This ensures that all child support obligations are satisfied timely.When does child support end in Texas?
In most circumstances, a parent's obligation to continue paying child support ends when the child reaches the age of majority, which is 18 years old in Texas. However, some circumstances allow the support obligation to end before or after the child's 18th birthday.
