Child Support Attorney in Lancaster

Helping Families in Antelope Valley Since 1952

Once a couple decides to terminate a marriage through the process of divorce, the couple must consider many important elements regarding the marriage. If there are minor children, issues involving the children must be decided. Because both parents may be held responsible for the development of minor children, agreements pertaining to child support and child custody must be made. At Law Offices of Michelizzi, Schwabacher, Ward & Ward, our Lancaster divorce attorneys have been dedicated to helping families in Antelope Valley find solutions to complicated family law issues since 1952.

How is child support calculated in California?

The amount of child support to be paid from one parent to the other is based on specific guidelines that have been outlined by California's family courts. Child support can be based on each parent's net disposable income and the amount of time that the child is cared for by each parent. Child support is calculated based on a number of factors, including the following:

  • Net income in the form of money, property, or services
  • Unemployment, disability, or workers' compensation benefits
  • Wages, including tips, commissions, bonuses, earnings, interests, dividends, pensions, Social Security, and other benefits

In addition to child support, parents may be required to pay other expenses for children. These could include child care, medical care, insurance, travel costs between households, and other needs. Because child support can impact the finances of both parents, our Lancaster child support lawyers can work to ensure that the amount of child support is fair for all parties involved. Whether you are on the paying or receiving end, our legal team can help you through the process of calculating child support. We can take the time to explain every part of the process so that everyone understands the significance of the child support amount and why the support is needed.
