Temecula Child Support Attorney

Financial Responsibilities With Child Support

Money is often subject to contentious arguments at every stage of a family law case. This is especially true when it comes to child support arrangements. At The Law Offices of John G. McGill, Jr., we handle child support issues for clients throughout the area. Mr. McGill has more than 30 years of experience representing clients in a wide range of family law matters, including child support.

Determining Child Support Calculations

In California, child support is determined by a formula set by the legislature in the state statues. Since this is the case, we are able to estimate the child support you may have to pay or could be awarded. Many different factors contribute to the child support calculation, including:

  • The income of each parent
  • The assets of each parent
  • Child custody arrangements
  • Parental rights to the child
  • Child care and health care expenses
  • Special needs of the child
  • Tax filing status of each parent

Though the amount of child support awarded is set by a formula, it is possible to change the amount when circumstances warrant a change. Our firm handles these types of pre-judgment and post-judgment modifications in the event that a substantial change in circumstances affects the ability of the parent paying child support or necessitates a change in the amount received.

The custodial parent is frequently awarded child support, independent of gender.
