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.

    “My experience working with Joy over the last year has been very favorable. Joy is an amazing attorney. She is smart, professional, clever, strong, and compassionate. She will fight for your best interest and guide you through the process. While my divorce started in mediation it went straight down and dirty from the other side. I felt hopeless and wanted to give up. Joy has been kind and can hold her own to any attorney out there. She has been a friend and a fighter!”
