Do you feel that the other parent of your child is not paying you enough child support each month? Or, do you feel that you are paying too much in child support? If you’ve never had a qualified family law attorney assist you in calculating child support, the answer to either of these questions is probably a solid “yes.”
The amount of child support in California to be paid is not just a number that either parent throws out there on a whim. It is determined by several factors. The main factors include the number of minor children involved, the percentage of time the children spend with each parent, and the income of both parents.
However, these are not the only factors to be considered when calculating child support. There are several other factors that must be considered including whether either parent is paying child support for a child from another relationship, special hardships that either parent may have, and mandatory union dues (just to name a few).
Moreover, given the current state of the economy, it is very possible that child support was set using an income amount of a parent that is too high (or possibly too low for that matter).
If you are not sure what factors were considered in calculating the child support amount, or if you have a feeling that your child support payment is currently set too high or too low, then you need to call the experienced California family law attorneys at Wallin and Klarich immediately so that we can help.
