What Factors Are Used To Determine Child Support?

In California, the amount of child support is based on a statutory formula. The formula takes into account the number of children, the income of the parents, the percentage of time each parent spends with the child, necessary expenses required for raising the child, health insurance, prior child support obligations, and other factors.

The most common factors involved in a child support decision include:

  • The income of both parents
  • The earning potential of each individual
  • The cost of living for each parent
  • The everyday costs of raising the child
  • Any special needs or expenses of the child

Parents can use the guideline calculator to decipher how much they will have to pay. In a mediated or uncontested divorce case, you and your spouse will be making the decisions concerning child support, whereas, with litigated divorce, this decision will come down to a judge's assessment of various factors.

How Long Do I Have to Pay Child Support?

Pursuant to Family Code Sections 3900 and 3901, the "father and mother of a minor child have an equal responsibility to support their child in the manner suitable to the child's circumstances."

Generally, both parents must support their child until the age of 18 years old. In some cases, payments can carry through 19 years of age, if the child is not married and is a full-time high school student. Child support terminates when a child marries, emancipates from the parents, or joins the military.

The Counsel You Need to Achieve the Best Possible Outcome in Your Divorce

When people are upset, they are sometimes unable to look at the big picture and tend to focus on situations that may not be constructive to the issue at hand. This is one of the major reasons it is invaluable to have legal representation that will always keep your best interests in mind when there are decisions to be made.

There may even be changes in the lives of the parents or children that may require modifications to already existing child support agreements. Changes like an increase in salary, a new marriage, relocations, or growing educational needs for a child can all be considered grounds for alterations to an agreement. Having a Rancho Cucamonga child support lawyer by your side who can identify all of these aspects is crucial.

If you are looking for help with child support issues, contact Family Law Advocacy Group today for qualified counsel from an award-winning advocate.
