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.

    “Joy Kraft Miles recently appeared on KABC radio's show So What's Your Problem? She gave great legal advice to our listeners, she is a very caring person! You can't do any better than Joy if you are facing or involved in any Family Law Matter........She's the best there is!!”

    Stan

  • In my view, they performed a miracle in three hours.

    “You have our sincerest thanks, and Ms. Miles and Mr. Star, who did the best job, possibly, of any mediators I have ever appeared in front of. When I drove away from my home this morning, I had no hope whatsoever this case would come anywhere close to settling. In my view, they performed a miracle in three hours.”

    Michael

  • She was tough as nails where needed and tender and compassionate to everyone involved.

    “Joy represented me in a case to solidify child support and adjust the visitation schedule for my 12-year-old son. She had the difficult task of helping two very different parents with very different value systems come to an agreement that would best benefit the child. She was tough as nails where needed and tender and compassionate to everyone involved. Above all, she was a huge blessing in helping me see the situation from the perspective that kept my child as the priority and very thorough and detailed to explore every option available. My son is better off because of her diligence in this case. I am very grateful to her for her services and expertise in family law.”

    Yvonne

  • The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1!

    “I have been in and out of family court for the past 14 years battling a high conflict case. I have had a total of 5 different attorneys prior to finding this firm. This firm is the ONLY firm that made me feel cared for, heard, and understood. The patience they had for all my questions, issues and concerns, the dedication working late hours to do the best job possible. The true care and attention they put into my case makes this firm the best firm I have ever dealt with. My case is a high conflict case and before I found Brigitte and Joy I was completely lost and taken advantage of by my previous attorneys. The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1! Having dealt with so many attorneys, I would, hands down, recommend this firm to everyone in need of representation. They have been a light in my path after such a long dark road! I am so grateful.”

    Sheyla C.

  • Five stars doesn't do justice, Joy deserves 10 out of 5!
