Child support influences the lives of many family members


Generally, child support is the financial obligation that covers a child's everyday expenses, healthcare and other needs, making child support a very serious matter for many California families. Whether an individual is paying or receiving this monthly support, it affects families and children in so many ways. Unfortunately, those effects can bring challenges.

We can help with your child support issues


Raising a child nowadays can be expensive. The cost of child care is rapidly increasing, together with school expenses, health care and everyday expenses. Such financial needs are the worry of many two-income families in Orange County, California. The child support issue may be an even bigger problem with non-custodial parents.

We can assist you with changes that affect child support


Money is oftentimes a factor in family law conflicts and disputes. This also applies to child support issues in California. Child support is the amount of money that a parent or both parents should pay every month. It is often determined by a court and based upon California's child support formula and guidelines. Child support guidelines are subject to changes that impact the outcome of divorce cases and the welfare of the child.

The complexities of alimony in a California divorce


Alimony is one of many issues that can complicate a divorce settlement. Many Californians may know something about alimony themselves or from the publicity surrounding high-profile divorce cases. What many people do not realize, though, is that alimony is more than a request for monthly financial support from a higher wage-earning spouse. It also emphasizes the lack of financial control one spouse had during a marriage.

What is the court's role in child support disputes in California?


Basically, the amount of a child support award in California depends on the sources of income for both parents, financial needs of the child and other expenses. However, the final decision regarding child support is in the hands of a family law judge or court commissioner.

Child support programs and enforcement in California


Child support has an important role in the life of children who live in California. It can help cover the child's living expenses, basic necessities, health care and other financial needs. However, there are certain instances where the non-custodial parent fails to pay child support. This is the right time for authorities to step in and help. California has a child support program to help collect payments from child support obligors. The program also assists parents in establishing paternity and enforces child support orders, helping many families and children obtain what they need.

How same-sex couples fare with divorce around the country


Property division, spousal support, child custody and child support are among the legal issues that can be a point of contention when a marriage ends. Over the last decade, though, another issue has brought more than a little confusion, anxiety, uncertainty and bitter court battles and challenges for many Americans: same-sex divorce.

Personal data impacts divorce and family law issues


Identity theft is common these days and can ruin a person's finances, reputation and life. The risks brought by identity theft are not the only reasons why California spouses should protect their personal data. Digital information should be protected from spouses, especially in the event of a divorce and other family law issues, such as child custody and child support disputes.

How spouses can prepare for a smoother and quicker divorce


Many Californians are familiar with the challenges that come as a marriage is ending. Beyond the conflicts and anxieties is the need to make decisions about child custody, child support, spousal support and property division. For some spouses, this array of decisions leads them to put off divorce plans until just the right time and just the right circumstances.

Implications of child support modification can be serious


California is a progressive state when it comes to child support issues. Child support modification can be obtained by petitioning family court and is usually obtained by a custodial parent whenever necessary and can include an increase in child support, a decrease in the amount or elimination of existing child support.
