Before you think child support is set

Although many divorcing couples feel that child support calculators are the end all be all to court-ordered child support amounts, there are many other things that can affect what you are ordered to pay or receive. Family courts may use a simple guideline or formula to come up with the initial number for child support, but a skilled family law attorney can identify factors that may change how your particular amount is calculated.

Depending on your circumstances a family law attorney, well versed in California child support regulations, should be able to help you come to a true number that represents an accurate income. This may be helpful if you or your ex have cash paying jobs, substantial investments or if you or your ex own a business.

In the event you find yourself defending against a child support action, there are steps a family law attorney can take to help you resolve the issues and move forward with parenting. For individuals in these situations the frustration and stress that child support issues can create, may impact your ability to parent collaboratively. When faced with these challenges, many people look for a supportive, educated and knowledgeable family law attorney to turn to with questions and concerns. If you think your income has been falsely calculated, resulting in an unfair order for child support, your attorney can work on your behalf toward accurate modification.

Child support is a way to provide for your children after divorce. Even though the subject of modifying or increasing child support is often met with contempt and anger, it doesn't always have to be. Your attorney can work with you, or on your behalf to smooth over issues in a fair and equitable way.
