Considerations for Child Support Arrangements

Divorcing partners who have children together will likely have to navigate child support arrangements. Child support, unfortunately, can often become an extremely contentious issue, both during the divorce proceedings and after a settlement has been reached.

Whether you are the person paying or receiving Child Support, our experienced and dedicated lawyers at Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP understand the impact this case can have on your life.

Depending on the amount paid or received, it can affect your finances, making it critical to get the child support agreement you believe is best and most reasonable for you and your child.

How Is Child Support Calculated in California?

Child support payments are typically calculated usually a specific formula that takes a number of factors into account.

Courts will consider:

Each parent’s income
The current child custody agreement
The number of children involved
Whether or not each parent is financially supporting other children
The child’s healthcare and childcare expenses

Income is the factor that will play the biggest role in the calculation of child support. In a child support case, income refers to much more than just a parent’s salary or wages.

Income can also include:

Disability benefits
Workers’ compensation benefits
Unemployment benefits
Interest payments
Retirement benefits

Most family law judges will stick to the formula to calculate child support payments – however, judges do have the right to deviate from this formula if they believe it is necessary to do so.

Legal Issues Regarding Child Support

When it comes to Child Support Agreements, determining an initial agreement is just as important as making sure that the agreement is enforced and reflects the parents’ current circumstances.

As such, many people find themselves seeking help not only to create an initial Child Support Agreement but also when dealing with:

Modifications to Support Agreements
Enforcing Support Agreements

For these and other issues that Child Support Agreements can create, having a legal professional on your side who knows what it takes to get you the outcome you want can be invaluable. In your time of need, turn to the Oceanside child support attorneys at Fischer & Van Thiel.
