Guidance That Puts Your Children First
Every child needs support from his or her parents. For this reason, the California child support guidelines provide a formula for the calculation of child support. While the guidelines look at a number of factors, it may be possible to deviate from the guidelines if there are special circumstances.

Understanding Child Support In California
Child support is determined largely by formulas that take a number of factors into account, including:
- The number of children
- The income of both parents
- Custody and visitation arrangement
While the guidelines and child support calculators can be rigid, I can help you navigate the child support formulas and work to present additional information that may positively affect the outcome of a support order. A child support calculation is only as accurate as the inputs used in the formula.
