Assisting Parents With Child Support Matters In California

In California, child support is calculated by using a software program incorporating the statewide uniform guideline formula. A variety of numbers are entered into the formula and used to calculate the amount of support payable by one party to the other.

Helping You Obtain Child Support During Divorce And Paternity Cases

While the issue of child support most frequently arises during a divorce proceeding, it is also an issue that needs to be addressed by unmarried parents in paternity cases. My experience as an attorney allows me to handle both types of child support cases, providing skilled guidance for parents and children in California.

At the Law Office of Chandra E. Miller, my role is to guide you through the child support process, making absolutely certain the calculations are completely accurate. If any numbers are overlooked or inaccurate, the resulting amount of child support you must pay or can receive will be incorrect. I take great care to make certain that your child support amounts are correct.

Important Factors For The California Child Support Formula

The two most important factors entered into the child support formula are the amount of time each parent has with the child and the income of each parent.

  • If the custodial parent spends significantly more time with the child, that may be reflected in a higher child support payment.
  • If the custodial parent has a much higher income, that may be reflected in a lower child support payment.

There are other factors used to calculate child support that should not be overlooked, including:

  • Health insurance premiums
  • Mortgage interest payments
  • Property tax deductions
  • Retirement fund contributions (both mandatory and voluntary)
  • Daycare costs
