How Is Child Support Determined?
Both parents have an obligation to support their minor children financially. Child support generally lasts until the child turns 18, but can continue until the child turns 19 in certain circumstances or on into adulthood if the child is disabled and not self-supporting. Parents may agree to be bound by an order providing support to a child after support would otherwise terminate. For example, the parties may agree to provide funding for a child's college education.
Child Support Guidelines
In California, child support is calculated according to a guideline or formula based on factors such as:
- The earning capacity of each parent
- The number of children
- How much time the children spend with each parent
- Medical, health insurance and certain other expenses
The parents can also agree on a different amount not based on the guideline. The court will generally approve the parents' plan if it is in the best interest of the child and made with full knowledge of child support rights and the amount set by the guideline.
Hiring Experienced Legal Counsel Is Critical
The factors that go into determining and calculating child support payments can be numerous and complex. An experienced family law attorney can help you understand the complexities of the guideline formula and ensure that you are paying or receiving the correct amount.
