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, Deanne Arthur offers helpful counsel to make certain that your child’s rights and interests are protected.
