Determining Child Support in California

Child support is an important part of the the divorce process. Both parents carry the responsibility to financially support their children, and that responsibility does not cease to exist after a divorce. In California, child support payments are driven by statutory guidelines. To ensure that your judgment is fair, it is important to have an experienced Riverside family law attorney on your side who understands the process and the law. At Holstrom, Block & Parke, a Professional Law Corporation, we help clients throughout Riverside County with a wide variety of child support matters, including enforcement and modification issues. We do everything we can to ensure that you receive the maximum level of support available for your children.

How Is Support Calculated?

California courts use a sophisticated formula to determine the correct level of child support. The formula is calculated by a state-approved software program, which takes into consideration a number of factors. The data required by the program is very specific. Having a child support attorney who is familiar with it can help ensure that you get an accurate result.

  • The income levels of each parent
  • How many children require support
  • The amount of time the child spends with each parent under the custody agreement

We will work to ensure that the income figures are accurate, and we can aggressively argue any special circumstances that might call for additional support. We will pursue every option available to obtain the most favorable possible result.
