Child Support in California Lawyers
Child support in California is based on the combined income of both parents, how many children a parent is responsible for supporting and how much time the children spend with each parent. All relevant information, taxes, special needs of parents and child and so on, is used to calculate the amount that the child gets in support.
What about the Child's Education?
If necessary the court can set aside a portion of the parent's joint or separate assets in a separate trust or fund for the support and education of the child.
Can the Child Support Order be Modified?
Yes, it can be modified by the court if there has been a change in financial circumstances, such changes are:
- A big increase or decrease in either of the parent's income
- The child is spending a lot more time with either parent
- The child is several years older than when the original child support order was given
- Circumstances have changed and the child now has special financial needs, such as medical expenses or schooling
