Child Support

child support attorney californiaSeal Beach Family Lawyer Representing Child Support Needs and Obligations Calculating Child Support in California

While it is true that, in most cases, child support obligations are calculated by a computer program in California, it is important to understand that there are many variables that can alter the amount of support the court ultimately orders.

A savvy attorney knows that some factors that are important in determining the non-custodial parent’s income — commissions, overtime wages, one-time bonuses, salary advances, loans, etc. — are arguable and can be characterized in different ways to affect the amount of child support ordered.

Other issues — such as custodial time sharing, filing status, and any special medical or educational needs of the child — may also come into play. That is why it is so important to discuss any child support issue with an experienced lawyer.
