Skilled Child Support Lawyer for La Costa, CA
When parents have separated or divorced, they are still required by law to contribute financially to the well-being of the children. At times in the past, child support was viewed by some as unfair. These days, family court sets the amount of child support using a computerized formula. Using these guidelines, the judge will require proper child support to be paid.
Our child support attorney is well aware of how important each of these factors are in determining the amount of child support that will be ordered. Parental debt, income, and tax deductions are a few elements used in the child support formula.
Other information regarding each parents financial situation is also used to determine child support payments:
Income of a New Spouse
Parental Tax Status
Child’s Special Needs
Child Care Expenses
Additional Children Residing in the Home
Other Child Support Orders
If certain extraordinary circumstances exist, these will be considered by the court before final determination of child support orders. La Costa Child Support Lawyer Joseph B. Carnohan carefully informs clients of the important legal details. In cases where a very rare situation exists, Mr. Carnohan thoroughly explains the law, the client’s rights, and how the case may be affected.
