  • Paternity
  • Child support modifications

To schedule a consultation, contact our law office.

Child Support Guidelines

The California child support guidelines create a mathematical formula that is utilized by courts to compute child support awards. While the formula is straightforward, child support cases can be complex.

You need a knowledgeable professional who knows which information to include in your calculation and who understands how to interpret information that is used to calculate child support by opposing counsel. In addition, unique issues may arise in your case that require the assistance of a knowledgeable family law attorney, including:

  • Imputing income to voluntarily unemployed parents
  • Cases involving children with special needs that may involve higher costs of care
  • Determining the net income of a self-employed parent
  • Child support deviations for cases involving special circumstances
  • Child Support Modifications

I represent clients who are seeking or opposing a child support modification. If you feel you should be paying less child support or receiving additional child support, contact my law office for assistance.

I can perform a guideline child support calculation on your behalf to determine if you have a basis for a modification. If you have grounds for a modification, I can make all necessary filings with the court, negotiate on your behalf to seek a resolution of your child support dispute and vigorously protect your rights at any necessary hearings.
