Determining Child Support in California

Child support payment

The California legislature has created an entire body of law within the Family Code which lays out how child support is determined. Initially, determining guideline child support is based upon a mathematical formula. Guideline child support is presumed to be in the best interests of the child(ren). However, hiring a family law attorney who knows when guideline child support is inappropriate and unjust is important, as not all cases warrant applying guideline child support.

Quite often, you must also account for things like:

  • Healthcare
  • Daycare
  • Extracurricular activities
  • A child’s special needs

Some of these items may be considered mandatory and others discretionary. Ensuring you have knowledgeable counsel can ensure you are obtaining not only the correct amount of support if you are the payee but support that is sustainable if you are the payor.

To request a consultation, call (916) 794-4576 or contact us online today. Our child support attorneys in Folsom also serve families in Northern California and surrounding counties.

Enforcing Child Support Orders

Is the other parent of your child failing to uphold their end of the agreement? There are legal remedies available to ensure that the payor makes the appropriate payments each month.

Child support may be enforced by the Court in a number of ways, including but not limited to:

  • Wage garnishments
  • Interception of tax returns
  • Suspension of driver’s license
  • Revoking a passport
  • Levying on bank accounts
  • Incarceration for contempt of court
  • Fines
  • Invoking the right to interest on unpaid arrears

California child support laws and procedures are very complicated and should not be handled without consulting an attorney first. Therefore, it is imperative that you speak with an experienced child support attorney in Folsom before making any decisions.
