Child Support Attorney in South Bay

Torrance Divorce Lawyers Serving California Families Since 1977

California utilizes a set of guidelines and strict calculations in order to determine what child support payments should be made, and by which parent. If one parent is awarded child custody, the other parent is often required to provide some level of financial assistance. The amount of these support payments will be determined by a state-ordained calculator, which will consider a number of factors including - although not limited to:

  • Income of both parents
  • Amount of time each parent spends with the child
  • Number of children
  • Hardship deductions
  • Child care costs
  • Any special needs of the child

While this formula may seem straightforward, there are a number of caveats that can complicate matters or skew the final numbers if they are not properly addressed. A trustworthy and experienced Torrance divorce lawyer from our firm can help you confirm that the numbers included are computed properly and in accordance with California state law. We can ensure that any financial hardships are not overlooked. If the other parent is self-employed, we can conduct a cash flow analysis with the help of a financial expert.
