How Is Child Support Calculated in California?
The state of California uses a rigid mathematical process to determine child support payments in family law cases. Child support is considered a child’s right and a parent’s obligation. This means that the other parent cannot waive or deny child support payments on their child’s behalf.
The process of determining child support factors in how much time each parent spends with a child, as well as each parent’s income / ability to earn. This process also considers a parent’s living costs and other deductions. There are special circumstances the court will consider that can affect these cases.
Modifications to Existing Child Support Orders
Child support arrangements may need to change as situations change; for example, if:
- A parent gets a raise or promotion
- A parent gets a pay cut or loses a job
- A parent remarries
- A parent is disabled
- The child’s need significantly change
In some cases, a temporary modification may be granted. This is most common in emergency cases or a parent’s loss of employment. Child support orders can be modified. We can help if you have questions!
