Child Support: An Overview

When couples with children divorce one of the key issues that the court must rule on is the amount of child support to be paid by the non-custodial parent. California divorce law provides a specific formula to determine the amount of child support taking into account both the income of each parent and the parenting time established by the child custody and visitation agreements reached as part of the settlement. If you have questions or need legal advice regarding child support you should speak to a family attorney at Fusco & Clarke.

With the combined experience of over 40 years representing clients in their divorces we know that settlements are often contentious especially on the financial issues of support and alimony. We are well prepared to thoroughly investigate the financial records provided by both parties to protect our client's interests and provide the court with the information needed to determine the proper amount of child support required by law. While the state guidelines are ordinarily the method used to determine child support payments based on the non-custodial parent's income and the number of children, the court may also take other factors into account.

The Benefits of Retaining a Skilled Attorney

It is far better to try to reach an agreement between the parents on child support payments than to leave it to the court to decide. The parents are the most familiar with their children's needs and the standard of living they are most familiar with. We can help you work out an agreement that will be approved by the court and fulfill your parental obligations. In many cases, providing accurate income information is the most crucial step and we have our own investigators and forensic accountants to help you and the court get a full an accurate picture. With all the necessary information available and the state guidelines as the primary tool, reaching agreement on child support can make finalizing your divorce that much easier. Call our offices for a consultation and we can review your case and discuss your legal options.
