If you are in the early stages of your divorce and you have children, we are here to assist you with any child support issues that arise. As we often explain to our clients, California law recognizes that every child is entitled to support. Parents are obligated to provide support for their kids until they reach the age of majority, and child support can take up a substantial portion of a parent’s income. You may know that California uses an “income shares” model to calculate child support, which means that both parents contribute to a child support obligation.
We want to clarify what the income shares model of child support means for you. When you get divorced, the court will look at both parents’ incomes and will calculate a total support obligation. Next, the court will decide what portion of that obligation will come from each parent. We will help to make sure that your spouse accurately reports his or her income and assets to the court, and that you both contribute your fair share to child support.
Child support disputes can be incredibly problematic, but our Pasadena child support lawyers at Salisbury, Lee & Tsuda are here to help with your case. We have years of experience working with clients just like you on various child support matters.SCHEDULE A CALL
