How California Child Support Is Calculated

A court calculates how much a parent is supposed to pay in child support using a number of factors. For example, income is one of the biggest factors that a court considers. This can include a variety of things besides salary, such as tips, commission, bonuses, disability benefits, retirement benefits, and other forms of income.

In addition to income, California courts will consider the following when calculating child support:

  • The current child custody agreement
  • The number of children to support
  • Whether or not each parent is financially supporting other children
  • The child’s healthcare and childcare expenses

Although determining an initial child support agreement is important, it is just as important to make sure the agreements are enforced or modified after significant changes in circumstance.
