Westlake Village Child Support Attorney
Seek Legal Assistance from the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Graff
If children are involved in a divorce in California, the court may order one or both parents to pay child support. However, child support is typically the cause of repeated confrontation between both parties. The custodial parent may experience problems with consistent payment, while the non-custodial may be suspicious about how the money is being spent for the wrong reasons.
At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Graff, we can help you ensure that your children get the financial support necessary to have a good life and that the financial obligations of the other party are being met. If you are having issues meeting your child support payment obligations, our Westlake Village family lawyer can help you modify your current plant in order to accommodate your circumstances.
How Do You Calculate Child Support In California?
In California, both parents have the responsibility to support their child or children. They are obligated to cover their financial needs, such as education, health insurance, and medical care. The amount of child support is based on the income of both parents and the number of children who require support. When establishing an individual’s ability to pay, courts take a parent’s gross income and remove any mandatory deductions, resulting in the net income.
Gross income includes, but not limited to, the following:
- Pension or retirement fund
- Trust funds
