In California, child support is determined by a set of guidelines which the court must follow. These guidelines account for the income and earning capacity of each parent, while also considering how much time each parent will be with the child. With almost three decades of experience, Family Law Attorney Joseph Carnohan understands these issues are highly emotional for both parents and he is dedicated to guiding clients through each legal challenge.
Although the parents are divorcing or separating, each is still expected to contribute financially toward the child’s welfare. The family court has established a set of guidelines along with a complex mathematical equation which computes the amount of child support.
Fallbrook Child Support Lawyer Joseph Carnohan works closely with each client to ensure the information used in these calculations is accurate and includes all relevant factors, such as the following:
In situations that include special circumstances, the court will consider the details before making a final determination for the amount of child support. Our experienced child support attorney understands how to create effective presentations to obtain an equitable outcome.
Support continues until either the child reaches age 18 and completes high school, or when the child turns 19, or until college graduation if both parents agree to continue the support. If medical conditions or special circumstances are present, the financial support may be continued indefinitely.
Family Law Lawyer Joseph Carnohan is highly qualified to handle all matters relating to child support, including enforcement and changes to the court orders. Our family law firm represents clients who are seeking to collect back child support payments and also clients who have fallen behind with paying their obligations.
In cases involving a significant change of circumstances, Mr. Carnohan is prepared to file a post judgment modification to change the level of child support.
