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.

Fortunately, our firm is always current with these guidelines. We know the potential impact of these changes in California’s family law on your child support and divorce case. For one, child-care expenses are rapidly increasing nowadays, which can affect the child support amount being awarded by the court.

Our legal team will conduct a thorough analysis regarding the financial needs of a child, ranging from school expenses to health care up to basic necessities like food, clothing and shelter. In the event a court ordered child support amount seems insufficient for the needs of the child, we may present different options to modify the child support order.

Besides changes in state laws and child-care expenses, any significant change that occurs in the life of a non-custodial parent is important. For example, loss of a job means loss of income, which basically affects the capability of the non-custodial parent to meet his or her child support payments. If you are faced with an unexpected change in employment, our firm may be able to assist you in asking the court for child support modification.

It is important for a non-custodial parent to have any changes approved by the court instead of unilaterally implementing them. Otherwise, any changes made on child support payment may result in legal trouble. Child support can be a complicated issue, but our child support website may provide you with information you need to know about your child support rights and obligations.
