How is Child Support Determined in Riverside County?
In Riverside County and throughout California, there is a standard formula used to determine what a non-custodial parent must pay to support a child or children. The formula takes many different factors into account including:
- Combined and individual parent income
- The number of shared children
- Other necessary expenses like support for other children or required union dues
- The amount of time kids spend under the care of each parent.
A calculator is available from the California Department of Child Support Services to help you estimate the amount of support that should be required in your situation.
Since the calculations can be complicated depending on the special needs of a child, it is a good idea to get proper legal advice rather than trying to calculate support on your own.
What if You Need to Modify an Existing Support Order?
You must abide by your child support order to avoid serious legal consequences; however, your custody arrangement or financial situation may change. When this happens, there is a legal process you must fulfill to modify the support order.
Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox LLP can provide legal assistance through the support order modification process. You cannot stop the support payments until you get the order changed, so do not hesitate to reach out to one of our lawyers as soon as your circumstances necessitate a modification in support that is due.
