Child Support Lawyer in Yorba Linda, California
At the Law Office of Brenda McCune, we have extensive experience with child support issues. We are highly knowledgeable of the California child support laws and take the time to thoroughly explain them to our clients.
Child Support - A Formula Set by Law
In California, child support is determined by a formula that is set by state statute. Since this is the case, we are able to estimate the child support you may have to pay or be awarded. Many different factors contribute to the child support calculation, including:
- Each parent's income
- Each parent's net worth
- Each parent's parenting time
- Child care expenses
- Health care co-pays and insurance premiums
- Special needs (for example, for a disabled child)
The purpose of the resulting complex computer calculation is to equalize the standard of living in both parents' homes. The formula encourages active parenting by both parents.
Though the amount of child support that is to be awarded is set by a formula, it is possible to change the amount being paid or received in the future. Our firm handles these types of post-judgment modifications in the event that a substantial change in circumstances affects the amount of child support in a case.
Though it is mostly mothers that are awarded child support, the awarding of support is dependent on the parent that has primary custody of the child. In some cases, this is the father. We are able to effectively advocate for fathers' rights whenever necessary in child support or other types of family law cases.
Whatever the amount of child support awarded, the court sees these cases as being handled in the best interests of the child. We at the Law Office of Brenda McCune view them the same way, focusing our attention on the children in the matter.
