Calculating Child Support in California
Child support is calculated by state-approved software that takes a number of different factors into consideration, including the income levels of both parents, who has primary custody of the children, who is paying for the children’s health care and day care, mortgage deductions and other tax impacts.
One of the main keys to obtaining a fair child support settlement is having accurate income figures for both spouses. Our Dublin child support lawyers use the same software as the local judges, and we do our own child support calculations. We do everything we can to secure the best possible support payment and present a strong case to the court to support our calculation.
California Spousal Support
Under California law, spousal support can either be temporary or permanent. Temporary support is often ordered to provide financial support while the divorce is in progress. In most cases, guidelines determine the amount of support that should be paid in a temporary spousal support order.
At the end of a divorce, permanent spousal support may be awarded. There are no formal software calculations for spousal support but a number of factors are considered, including the length of the marriage, the standard of living that was established during the marriage, the income level and earning capacity of each spouse and many others. We will work to reach a spousal support agreement that puts you in the best possible position after the divorce.
