TEXAS PARENT TO CHILD RESPONSIBILITIES

Standard

In Texas parents have the duty to support their children, including providing them with clothing, food, shelter, medical and dental care, and education. The duty of a parent to support his or her child exists while the child is an unemancipated minor and continues as long as the child is fully enrolled in an accredited secondary school in a program leading toward a high school diploma until the end of the school year in which the child graduates. A parent who fails to discharge the duty of support is liable to a person who provides necessaries to those to whom support is owed.
