In California, and all states for that matter, the government uses child support as a means of ensuring that children enjoy the financial security being raised in a two parent home would have provided them. The law dictates that individuals be responsible for their children and that those children should be well provided for and not want for the necessities of life.
Child support orders have been standardized. Courts are able to apply a formula to figure the amount of support owed. California has a calculator that individuals can use to estimate what their child support payment might be: https://www.cse.ca.gov/ChildSupport/cse/guidelineCalculator#. The equation itself balances the difference between each parent’s income against the difference in time that the children spend with each parent.
While child support laws do focus on the welfare of children, it is also important that they remain fair. They are not intended to take advantage of either of the parents involved. This is where much of the litigation involved in child support cases takes place. California child support attorneys can help define variables of income and time spent in a positive light for their clients.
