Calculating Child Support in California
In California, the parent without custody is typically ordered to pay child support. The court may also order one party to pay a certain amount of spousal support (or alimony) each month. At the Dominion Law Group, LLP our San Jose child support attorneys can explain what factors are used to determine child support.
California uses formulas in statutory law to calculate child support costs. The amount of child support you are required to pay will depend on several factors used in the formula, such as:
- Child Care Costs
- Medical Expenses
- Health Insurance
- Medical Bills
- Educational expenses
- Private School
- The amount of time spent with the child
- Standard of living before the divorce
The above are only some of the many factors considered when determining child support in California. If you need to speak to a child support lawyer about your child support payments, call us or contact one of our child support lawyers online. With our extensive experience and our intense focus on family law, we can answer all of your questions and represent you through any child custody or child support challenge.
Child Support Modification Lawyers
While the permanent child support amount is set by the court at the time of the divorce decree, it can change over time. A promotion or a new job that provides a higher salary, a layoff, a change in child custody arrangements — each can result in child support modifications. Lawyers at the Dominion Law Group, LLP can analyze your current child support levels. If need be, we can petition the court on your behalf to obtain a modification in the child support requirement which reflects the new situation.
