What Is Child Support?

Like any family law issue involving minor children, child support can easily become complex and contested.

How Is Child Support Calculated in CA?

According to California law, child support must be calculated in accordance with specific statewide guidelines.

These guidelines are:

  • Determining each parent’s gross income (wages, tips, commissions, bonuses, unemployment benefits, workers’ compensation, social security, pension, inheritances)
  • Determining each parent’s disposable income
  • Determining if each parent has any prior court-ordered payment arrangements, if so, this could affect the payment amount
  • Determining the payment amount based on the factors above and the child’s specific needs

Though there is a set formula used to create a child support payment plan, there are ways to properly represent a case to help achieve a result that works.
