Resolving Child Support Issues

When parents decide to go their separate ways, establishing child support is often a necessity. At Family Law Group, INC., we help our clients determine who will pay child support, explain how the support amount is determined and ensure that our clients’ interests are protected throughout the process. From offices in Livermore and Walnut Creek, we serve clients throughout the Bay Area.

We offer a team of attorneys dedicated exclusively to family law with more than 35 years of combined experience among them. We also have extensive experience dealing with the statewide child support collection agency (often called DCSS). This experience can help you whether you are looking to enlist their services or have received notice that they will begin enforcing an order against you.

How Child Support Is Determined In California

In California, child support is largely determined based on the parents’ current income, child custody arrangement or orders and tax obligations

Your child custody arrangement will have a significant impact on the child support amount. Our firm can assist you in establishing a parenting plan and other family law matters related to your divorce or separation.

These numbers are entered into a software program that calculates a support amount. It is important to have an experienced attorney representing you to ensure that the numbers entered into the calculations are accurate and that you arrive at a fair support figure.

Child Support Enforcement And Modifications

Our lawyers are deeply familiar with California’s child support laws. Whether you need representation during an initial child support determination, to extend support for a special needs child over 18 or to enforce or modify an existing child support order, we are prepared to assist you.
