Child Support Attorneys
Child Support Cost
The main question associated with child support matters in the event of a divorce or legal separation is – how much will it cost? Unless you work out child custody and support agreements out of the courtroom through divorce mediation or a similar form of alternative dispute resolution, the court will make a ruling regarding what amount of child support you may receive or be required to pay. California child support payments are calculated based off a specific formula, or guideline.
Although child support is calculated off a set formula, there are actions that a child support attorney can take to help ensure that your interests are protected in these proceedings. Additionally, child custody arrangements will often directly affect child support. By assisting you with your custody arrangement, an attorney can also positively impact your child support arrangement or ruling.
Lawyers for Child Support
Once child support is determined, you will have to make payments or may receive payments for many years; most often until the child turns 18. By consulting a lawyer regarding your situation, you can see what legal action can be taken to positively influence the child support cost you may face.
