The Texas State Legislature has established guidelines for child support. Those guidelines are found in chapter 154 of the Texas Family Code. The guidelines are presumed to be "reasonable", and an order of support conforming to those guidelines is presumed to be "in the best interest of the child."
Texas divides marital property as community property. This means any property owned by either spouse during the marriage is community property between the spouses. The court also divides marital debt at this time and ownership is recognized the same way. However, property that is owned by either spouse before the marriage is considered separate property. In a case involving children, the Texas divorce court often divides the property unequally. An equal division of the community property is not required by the Texas divorce laws, were as some other community property states adhere more to the 50-50 split rule.
