How Child Support Is Calculated or Modified

Two primary factors influence how a court will determine regular child support payments:

  • The total income of each party; and
  • The time that each party spends with their child.

The ultimate goal of child support is to grant the party who holds greater custody the ability to provide their child with the same standard of living that the child would have when the parties were together.

Additional factors that could affect a child support agreement include:

  • Any special needs the child has
  • Health expenses, educational costs, etc.
  • The standard of living prior to parties splitting
  • If domestic abuse has ever occurred

In addition to the initial agreement, there are other factors that can affect an ongoing child support agreement, such as a work relocation or the loss of a job. When variables do change your child support circumstance, you have the right to request a child support modification. If this is the case, you will need a seasoned Palm Desert child support attorney to present your case to the court. Call (888) 251-9618 today!
