State Guidelines for Child Support Determination
Child support in California is controlled by state guidelines which utilize a mandatory formula. Courts are using computer programs to implement this complicated guideline. In using these programs, factors such as the gross income of both parties and certain deductible expenses are entered in the formula to determine the correct amount of child support. If either of the parents dispute the amount of child support, the matter will be decided by a judge who considers the guidelines before determining the amount of child support to be paid.
Given the rigid nature of the guidelines, the primary influence over calculating appropriate child support payments is in the determination of income. Our clients benefit from the extensive knowledge and experience of Encinitas Child Support Attorney Jeffrey Novack. He determines the true income necessary for this formula.
The Guideline Calculation Depends On:
- How Much Money the Parents Earn or Can Earn
- How Much Other Income Each Parent Receives
- How Many Children These Parents Have Together
- How Much Time Each Parent Spends with Their Children
- The Actual Tax Filing Status of Each Parent
- Support of Children from Other Relationships
- Health Insurance Expenses
- Mandatory Union Dues
- Mandatory Retirement Contributions
- The Cost of Sharing Daycare and Uninsured Health Care
- Other Factors
In certain situations, additional factors must also be factored in for consideration of child support, including costs for travel of a special needs child, educational expenses, necessary equipment and more.
