No doubt, dealing with child custody and visitation issues is one of the most emotionally trying experiences in your life. Once a determination by court or settlement has been made, you must turn to the financial implications – whether you are seeking child support payments or will be required to pay them.
California courts determine the amount of child support that should be paid primarily by considering how much time each parent spends with the child and each parent’s actual or “imputed” income. Our experienced child support attorneys will work to make sure the correct amount of support is being paid/received.
Sometimes, modifications to child support orders are required due to a significant change in circumstances, such a parent losing a job or getting a pay raise, or the child/children spending different amounts of time with either parent. We will assist in obtaining a modification that better fits your current situation.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the child support guidelines, contact one of our child support attorneys in Orange County, Los Angeles, or San Diego. We will make sure the best interests of your child and your financial interests are protected.
