While some attorneys will reassure you that determining child support is a relatively simple task, this is not always the case. At Fair Cadora, APC, our San Diego divorce attorneys understand just how complex the process of calculating child support can be and can work alongside you determine the correct amount of child support in your case.
Some factors that can affect the amount of child support ordered by the court include:
Parents’ individual disposable income
Division of time spent with children
Number of children being supported
Deductions for some expenses
Whether you are the parent who is paying or receiving support, it is important to mind the best interest of your child in mind. The calculations used to determine child support in California are based on a specific set of guideline formulas, which are intended help mitigate any feelings of unfairness by either parent.
If there is a significant change in circumstances of either parent, they can request a modification of child support. For example, a parent may become unemployed and request an adjustment to child support so the child’s needs will continue to be met while still allowing them to support themselves. A substantial change in parent income (usually 10% or more) is also a common reason to request a modification of child support.
