California Child Support Requirements
Child support is usually paid by the non-custodial parent to the parent who has primary physical custody to assist with the ever-growing costs associated with raising children. Even if the child resides with both parents for an equal amount of time, the parent with the lower income may still be entitled to child support to ensure the child is well-supported and cared for. Under California child support law, the amount that must be paid in child support is determined by state guidelines.
The required payment amount of child support is determined by:
- The gross income of each individual parent.
- The amount of time the child spends with the non-custodial parent.
- The cost of childcare, including health insurance.
- Overall living situations, taking into account additional children that are living with either parent.
Whether you are the custodial or non-custodial parent of a child, our Calabasas divorce attorney can offer helpful counsel to ensure that both you and your child’s rights and interests are protected.
