How Do I Get Child Support Modified in Escondido?

Child support modifications require a significant change in circumstances, such as a substantial increase or decrease in your own income, or a substantial increase in the income of your ex. Other factors that might affect support is the amount of time you now spend with the children, and the distribution of other costs such as healthcare, education or extra-curricular activities. It is important to structure your request properly and present a well documented argument to the court to ensure success in your goal of reducing child support. Contact the experienced child support modification lawyers at Palmer Rodak & Associates today.

I'm on the birth certificate in Vista, Don't I have Rights as an Unmarried Father?

No, if you are not married to the baby's mother unfortunately you don't. California has developed some additional protections, but most of those relate to the certification you complete at the hospital, and your agreement to provide child support. In California, all custody and legal decision making in unmarried situations rests with the mother. If you wish to have legal rights regarding custody & visitation you must assert your fatherhood to establish "paternity". This is the only way the State of California will recognize you as the child's legal father, and allow the court to order custody, visitation and a measure of control or influence over important decisions in the life of your child.

How is Spousal Support Calculated in Oceanside CA?

The calculation of spousal support in Oceanside, Vista and North County is actually very fluid. It is an open negotiation in most cases, and the court has a lot of discretion when assigning spousal support. There are several factors that will affect spousal support including the length of the marriage, the lifestyle of the family, issues of education and retraining, as well as income and tax implications. The attorneys at Palmer Rodak & Associates are experienced divorce and family law attorneys who will help you to accomplish the best outcome in your case.
