Personal Guidance Through Simple and Complex Family Transitions

As anyone with children knows, it is very expensive to raise children in California. Because parties will be residing in two separate households, but on the same income, child support becomes crucial. Whether you are seeking child support or may be paying child support, there are a number of complex issues involved with the court determining the amount. In California, child support is calculated by use of a computer program. The amount of such child support is greatly influenced by the determination that is reached regarding the custody of your children and the calculation of each parent’s income. Even if your child support matter seems it could be easily resolved, it is a good idea to at least consult an attorney because of some of the more complicated factors that go into the calculation. This is especially true if one parent is self-employed.

Consulting an attorney regarding your child support provides you a clear understanding of what may occur and what your rights and obligations are regarding child support. You want those rights to be actively protected. After all, the court’s ruling on child support will likely affect you and your children’s financial situation for years to come.

Whether you are going through a divorce, legal separation, or a parentage action, it is important that you consult a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss matters involving, child support.
