Our experienced Roseville child support attorneys can walk you through the process and ensure that you have the help you need to obtain fair results.

How Is California Child Support Calculated?
Factors that may affect your child support calculation in California could include:
- Disposable income of each parent, including salary, Social Security benefits, unemployment benefits, and more
- Number of children requiring support
- Tax liabilities of each parent
- Custody agreement
- Healthcare costs of the child
- Any current child support payments to other children
- Each parent’s level of responsibility for the child
- The best interest of the child
- The standard of living for which the child has grown accustomed
A California judge will consider you and your spouse’s gross income and apply a percentage to it based on the number of underage children you share. The court will then take the combined income of both parties and determine the portion that each of you must contribute. This figure is then divided proportionately pursuant to each party’s ability to pay child support, as well as which parent has primary custody.
Once all of these factors have been examined, the court will make a decision based on the best interests of the child. The way your attorney presents the case plays a key role in the outcome. Knowing that your rights are being advocated by an accomplished and diligent legal professional should give you peace of mind. By calling the Bez Law Firm, P.C. for your case, you can rest assured that we are prepared to put your best interests first.
California’ Income Shares Model
When it comes to figuring out how much you can expect to pay in child support, California’s Income Shares Model (ISM). The ISM calculates the amount of support that would have been available if your marriage had continued. This amount is then divided proportionally according to each parent’s income. This tool is relatively simple and straightforward.
Can I Modify a Child Support Order?
Your child support orders are subject to change as your child grows and other circumstantial factors evolve. Our team can help you pursue an amendment to your child support arrangements. You may pursue changes if the child support order falls above or below state guidelines. You may also need to make modifications if your situation has changed significantly-for example if you have lost a job or you have had another child. You may wish to pursue increased support if your child's other parent has obtained a raise or otherwise advanced in their career, or if your child's needs have changed. Schedule a consultation with our child support lawyers in Roseville to find out more about your options for modifying court orders.
