How Do Courts Calculate Child Support in CA?

Child support payments in California are regulated by state guidelines. The amount of child support to be paid is determined by several important factors.

The court will consider:

  • Each parent’s income (two months' current income and a 12-month average)
  • Mandatory payroll deductions, such as retirement, health insurance, or union dues
  • The amount of time the child or children spend with each parent
  • The support paid for other children
  • The cost of health insurance, travel for visitation, or childcare expenses
  • Other tax deductions, such as mortgage interest and real property taxes

It is important to have your most recently filed tax return and two months' of paystubs available. If you are self-employed. you will need a Profit and Loss, or Schedule C.

Our divorce lawyers are skilled in researching and presenting all the required information for your child support case. Helping you reach a fair agreement is our highest priority.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • It's been a long and difficult road, but I can't imagine having accomplished this independence without Joy and her team.

    “I came to Joy in January afraid and confused after an altercation with my husband. She listened to me thoughtfully and professionally and guided me through my options. We set up a temporary restraining order, settled our division of assets, filed for divorce, and sold my marital home with her knowledge and strength physically protecting me and awarding me with the best possible financial result. It's been a long and difficult road, but I can't imagine having accomplished this independence without Joy and her team. I originally was referred to her through a mutual acquaintance being told she "fought hard for women". I can now confirm that to be true through my experience. Thank you, Joy”

  • There is NO ONE better than Joy Kraft Miles to handle your divorce case.

    “Joy is WAY beyond a simple divorce attorney. Joy is BAD A** (pardon the expression but it is accurate). BAD A** encompasses many things including integrity, intelligence & tenacity. Joy is HONEST, an extremely important trait for a divorce attorney because it is tempting to tell clients he/she has a great case and bill, bill, bill. Joy does not do that. Her goal is always to settle amicably, as long as it is fair and good for her client. Joy is brilliant, from her knowledge of the law itself to emotional intelligence in the form of strategy and effective negotiations. Joy Kraft Miles is a person who I have referred countless friends and clients and EVERY SINGLE ONE has had an amazing result and been thrilled on every level. They all say the same thing...there is NO ONE better than Joy Kraft Miles to handle your divorce case.”
