Skilled At Achieving Fair And Accurate Child Support Calculations
The California Child Support Guidelines create a mathematical formula that governs the calculation of a majority of child support obligations in the state. These guidelines are based upon several economic principles, including the gross income of both parents, the amount of time the child spends with each parent, child care costs, health insurance expenses and other necessary continuing costs.

Putting Our Insight And Experience To Work For You
The first step in determining child support is to establish both parents' true monthly income. This process is relatively simple for parents who earn a regular monthly wage.
Challenges can arise, however, when parents own their own business, have substantial investment or inheritance income, or work in seasonal or cash-paying jobs. We regularly work with forensic accountants to perform asset tracing and business valuations that help to accurately determine a parent's income — despite what the tax returns might say.
We are also adept at handling cases where deviation from the child support guidelines may be warranted. This sometimes happens in situations where a child has special needs, where a parent's income exceeds the amount contemplated by the guidelines, or where the children have become accustomed to a certain lifestyle during the marriage.
