How does California determine how much is owed in child support?

If you are a California resident, a parent and are headed for divorce, you may be trying to get an idea of how much you may have to pay in child support, or how much you may receive. While the amount that is ultimately determined will depend on numerous factors, the California Department of Child Support Services’ Child Support Handbook outlines how the state typically comes up with the amount of child support that must be paid.

Explaining custody to young children

Going through divorce affects the entire family in a dramatic way. When there are minor children living at home, the change can be even more traumatic. Parents in California who are working out the logistics of child custody should take the time to consider how they will discuss the new living arrangements with their children in order to minimize the confusion and unrest they might feel.

Evaluating your child’s best interests

While a divorce is hard on everyone in the family, it also allows you and your former spouse to reduce the conflicts your child experienced during your marriage. Your child has other needs besides a more peaceful environment, though, and in California, the judge will weigh those when preparing the final divorce decree. We at Palmer Rodak & Associates understand the considerations that go into a child custody decision, and have helped many parents to prepare parenting plans that the courts agreed to implement as written.

Common divorce blunders and how to avoid them

Many people across California and the United States choose to initiate a divorce after the holiday season, but “jumping the gun” and filing before one’s affairs are fully in order can prove disastrous for all involved. Per Market Watch, many divorce lawyers across the nation report a spike in business shortly after the start of the year, some of which likely results from the additional financial and emotional stress and strain many people experience throughout the holidays.
