Child Support Calculations in California

Child support is usually paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent to contribute to the cost of the child’s upbringing. The custodial parent is the parent with whom the child resides the majority of the time. If the child resides an equal amount of time with each parent, the parent with the lower income may still be entitled to child support. Under California child support law, payment amount is determined under statewide guidelines.

This formula is based on:

  • Gross incomes of the parents
  • Amount of time the child spends with the non-custodial parent
  • Cost of childcare including health insurance
  • Living situations considering other children living with either parent

Whether you are the custodial or non-custodial parent, our Los Angeles child support attorneys offer helpful counsel to make certain that your child’s rights and interests are protected.

How Do I Modify Child Support in California?

In the case of child support modifications, there are several reasons why a child support order might need to be changed, including:

  • A change in income or the loss of a job;
  • One parent has been incarcerated;
  • One parent had another child from another relationship;
  • The child is spending more or less time with either parent;
  • The child needs more (or less) costs for child care, health care, or education; and
  • There have been changes in any of the factors that were used to calculate the original child support amount.

If you feel that your financial situation has changed significantly and that a child support modification is in order, our team of Los Angeles child support attorneys can pursue a new, agreeable solution for all concerned.
