When the parents of a child decide to pursue divorce or separation, each parent is still legally responsible for the care of their child. In the eyes of the law, each is expected to help shoulder the expenses involved in the child’s health care, food, housing, education, and more. This does not necessarily mean that expenses will be split down the middle. Although child support orders have at times been viewed as unfair to both parents, the current system in place for determining proper child support is a computerized formula set up by the California State Legislature. Your family court judge will use this formula to create an order for child support.
Because this formula is what the court uses, each factor that is considered has the potential to make a large impact on the individual family members’ lives. Child Support Lawyer Carnohan understands the importance of accuracy in the specific information used in the child support formula. This information includes data regarding income, debt, deductions, and more.
Some matters considered in the initial determination of child support include the following:
Some family law cases have special circumstances. When this is so, family court will take these matters into consideration as it determines how much child support will be ordered. Del Mar Child Support Attorney Carnohan can help you with any questions about your specific situation. In the event that you have an extraordinary circumstance, he will discuss how this may impact your case and what your rights are.
At times, a family’s needs will change. This may mean that a change in support orders is warranted. Both the paying parent and the receiving parent may request a modification to support orders. Del Mar Attorney Carnohan can help you with child support modifications and guide you in your case. Under the law, payments must continue until one of the following happens:
In circumstances where a child has special needs and/or ongoing medical needs, the court may decide that payments will continue indefinitely.
