Child Support Legal Services

California law requires that each parent support his or her children to the best of his or her ability. The proper amount of child support is determined by the use of a statutory statewide formula which considers the income of both parties, the time the child spends with each party, and a number of other variables. While child support is based on this guideline, it is important to know that advocacy and interpretation by an attorney can have a significant impact on the child support orders in your case.
