Child Support Orders and Modifications
Helping You With Child Support Orders and Modifications
When child support is ordered by a California court, one parent is legally obligated to provide for the financial needs of his or her child or children. In determining how much child support is to be paid, a court generally uses a formula that takes into account both parents' incomes, visitation percentages and other factors. In other circumstances, parents can agree on child support arrangements outside of court.
From the perspective of parents, the common denominators in child support are concern for the needs of children and the desire for financial fairness.
