Child Support

Family courts in California determine when to award child support to a parent who has primary physical custody of a child. Child support awards are calculated using set guidelines, although many factors can play into a court's final award. Child support obligations typically cannot be discharged in bankruptcy, and there are serious penalties for not meeting them.

As an experienced family law attorney, I understand how important resolving issues of child support and custody can be for my clients. I always work to resolve disputes with as little confrontation as possible, but am never afraid to be aggressive when necessary to protect the rights of my clients and, just as importantly, their children.

Ensure that child support obligations are being fairly established in your divorce proceeding. My firm is here to help. Call 818-528-4936 or 661-591-4132 to schedule a confidential consultation.

Child Support Order Enforcement Attorney | Representing Clients In The San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley And Ventura County

Child support disputes typically arise in one of three settings: a divorce, a parentage action or a request for modification of an existing court order. Courts use set formulas, which are designed to give children the same overall level of support they would receive if their parents were living together in a single household.

Having an experienced lawyer by your side can help during child support proceedings by making sure a court has the proper information it needs to render a fair decision. This can include:

  • Each spouse's monthly income
  • Health insurance requirements
  • Child custody and visitation rights
  • Additional financial support from remarriage or cohabitation
  • Significant changes to either spouse's income
  • Tax deductions for child support

I can also represent you if you are seeking to modify or maintain an existing child support order.
