In California, a child support attorney from Monterrosa Law can help represent you in all proceedings to help find the best resolution for everyone involved. We understand that children are often caught in the middle of divorce or separations and we help to ensure that they are supported in a fair way moving forward.

In the state of California, child support is calculated using several factors including:

  • The income of both parents
  • The number of children
  • The custody or visitation arrangement in place

Ultimately, the amount set for child support will depend on the needs of the child or children and the cost of their standard of living, schooling, and insurance. There are many variables associated with each child custody case, so it can be difficult to reach a agreeable solution. This is one reason why it’s important to hire a qualified Southern California child support lawyer that can help you complete paperwork, create a payment amount and schedule that works, and ensures that your children are protected.

We Understand Child Custody Law in California

In the state of California, child support laws have a direct correlation between parenting time and child support. This means that if a parent has more time with the child, they will have a greater need for child support. Child support always terminates when a child turns 18 except when they are still a full-time high school student and lives with a parent. At that point, child support terminates when they graduate from high school or when they turn 19, whichever comes first.

Child support laws allow parents to agree to less or more than what the guidelines require. This can mean that the paying parent must provide security for the child support, sometimes for up to a year of child support. One of our child support lawyers can help represent you throughout child support proceedings to get you the results you deserve.
