How to Calculate Child Support in CA

Child support is often a very necessary aspect of getting your child the food, clothing, and other essentials they need to be happy and healthy. However, determining how much the non-custodial parent should pay can be a complex process, and having a skilled legal advocate on hand can help make things go much more smoothly.

When the courts are deciding how much child support to award, there are several factors they take into account, including:

  • Each parent’s income
  • The number of children
  • Estimated childcare expenses
  • Any existing or proposed child custody plan

Compassionate Support You Can Rely On

To our firm, nothing is more important than helping you find a solution that keeps your child’s best interests in clear focus. We are dedicated to helping you sleep more soundly knowing that your child will have access to what they need, and you or your spouse are paying a fair amount. Any divorce that involves children will have higher stakes, and emotions tend to run high – because of this, it is important to have someone with distance and perspective help both parties communicate effectively and do what they need to do for the child. In our experience, mediation is a much easier experience for children to handle than litigation due to its collaborative nature.
