§ 233.013. DETERMINING SUPPORT AMOUNT;
MODIFICATION. (a) The Title IV-D agency may use any information
obtained by the agency from the parties or any other source and
shall apply the child support guidelines provided by this code to
determine the appropriate amount of child support.
(b) If it has been three years since a child support order
was rendered or last modified and the amount of the child support
award under the order differs by either 20 percent or $100 from the
amount that would be awarded under the child support guidelines,
the Title IV-D agency shall file an appropriate child support
review order, including an order that has the effect of modifying an
existing court or administrative order for child support without
the necessity of filing a motion to modify.
