Day Care Expenses Backed by 100+ Years' Experience

Day Care Expense Attorneys Serving Costa Mesa And All Of Orange County

Amid the many complex emotional concerns parents have when they divorce with young children, it is possible to lose sight of important financial realities. For many families, day care costs are a substantial consideration that must be accounted for as an "add-on" to child support or as part of the overall financial settlement.

Who Will Pay Necessary Day Care Costs Once You Are Divorced?

At the Burch Shepard Family Law Group, we help our clients thoroughly evaluate all aspects of their financial situations as they prepare for divorce.

It is critical to account for the added expenses that will come with operating two households and determine how both parents' and the children's needs will be met, especially considering:

  • Day care may be a new or greatly increased expense if a formerly stay-at-home parent will work full time after the divorce.
  • Although the law provides for a 50-50 split of necessary child care expenses unless the parties have a great disparity in income, what constitutes necessary costs, parents' actual incomes and many other issues may be disputed.

Our experienced Orange County divorce lawyers are adept at evaluating unique family situations and formulating fair, well-researched settlement proposals. We have dealt with issues across the spectrum of disputes over child support, including those arising from other family members providing day care and choices between center-based day care or a nanny.

Your Skilled Advocates On All Financial Issues, Including Day Care Expenses

Whether you are targeting primary or joint child custody, it is important to assess early on the amount of child support you can expect to pay or receive.
