If you are currently going through a divorce or paternity determination process for your child, the awarding of child support is an integral part of the process. Under California law both parents are required to provide support for their child. We can assist you in establishing a child support or spousal support order in your family law case or we can file a request to modify or terminate spousal support or child support. We use the same computer software that the California judges use to calculate support orders. We ensure that your children will receive the support they are entitled in accordance with California law.
The court can deviate from guideline support in certain instances. If the parent is voluntarily unemployed or underemployed the judge can impute income to the parent based on their earning capacity
