HOW IS CHILD SUPPORT DETERMINED?

Determining child support can be a complex process

Southern California Child Support Attorney

Pursue a Support Arrangement That Meets Your Children’s Needs

At Holstrom, Block & Parke, APLC, we understand that determining, modifying, and enforcing child support payments can be a complex, messy process. Led by a team of six Certified Family Law Specialists, our Southern California child support law firm has the experience and expertise to help your family find a solution, while minimizing the time and stress involved. Our main priority is to ensure that your children have the financial support they need and deserve.

How Is Child Support Determined?

Child support obligations are determined by a specific set of statutory guidelines. These provide a clear structure for determining child support, which means a court must have compelling reason in order to deviate from them.

Key considerations in determining child support include:

  • The income levels of each parent
  • The number of children
  • The needs of each child
  • The number of overnights with each parent
  • The standard of living prior to divorce

The information required to calculate accurate child support payments is very precise. If the wrong figures are used at any point in the process, insufficient results can be delivered. Having the representation of an experienced attorney who is familiar with the statutory framework can help to ensure that the correct level of child support is ordered.

Call (855) 939-9111 for Knowledgeable Counsel

Our Southern California child support lawyers have a comprehensive understanding of child support laws and understand their relationship to other aspects of divorce agreements. If the child support amount that is determined by the guidelines does not satisfy the financial needs of your family, we can work to modify the support agreement accordingly. Our goal is always to obtain the best possible outcome available in your case.

We’re here to help.

Our family law firm represents parents on both sides of complex child support matters, including serious enforcement and modification issues. Contact our office today to speak with a child support attorney in a free initial phone consultation.
