Understanding Child Support Calculations in California

A formula in the California statutes determines the level of child support.

The child support level depends on:

  • The incomes of the parties
  • The amount of time the child spends with each parent
  • The amount of various expenses, such as mortgage interest and health care insurance.

Although child support is calculated using a formula set forth by a uniform computer program, the actual numbers entered into that program can influence the results. It is important to work with an attorney experienced in handling income figures and other child support calculations in order to have the best chance of reaching a favorable outcome.

Child Support Fairness and Payment Concerns

The purpose of child support is to hold both parents responsible for the care of their children, although it can often feel unfair. The custodial parent takes care of the children while the non-custodial parent pays for their needs.

In Orange County, what will be your child support obligation? Does child support take a large chunk of your paycheck? Your paycheck won't be taken from you in full for child support, but a percentage of your income will be deducted based on the number of children you support and the amount of parenting time you spend with them.

Modifications and Enforcement

Long after a divorce or separation agreement is finalized, modifications in child support orders may be required. A parent may lose a job, or a child may suffer health concerns, among other things that require a modification of the original financial support. Our child support lawyer in Orange County can help obtain the modification and work out a new agreement that better fits the current situation.

Our firm also assists with child support enforcement. Our Orange County family lawyers act quickly to file a judgment against the payor, with the hope that just the threat of legal punishment will get him or her to pay arrearages and current support payments.
