Child Support Lawyer in Oceanside – How Child Support is Calculated

All parents are required to provide support for the care of their children after divorce or permanent separation for unmarried couples. After many years of subjective Child Support rulings that were often deemed unfair by both the custodial and non-custodial parents, the California Legislature decided to codify a formula for the determination of Support. However, this formula is not only highly complex, it may be confusing even for attorneys. As a result, the courts utilize Computer Programs to decide the amount of the obligation.

There are numerous factors that are taken into account with respect to this matter. A knowledgeable Oceanside Child Support Attorney such as Mr. Carnohan knows how to present specific income, debts and deductions to the court during litigation over the matter. Regardless of how an agreement is reached, the amount of support must fall within state guidelines.

Although there are certain situations wherein the court will allow a deviation from the Support Guidelines, such as in the case of high earners, this is extremely rare overall.

The following factors are examined and reviewed prior to a Judgment for Child Support being entered. These include the following:Oceanside Child Support Attorney Joseph Carnohan
