In California, child support is calculated using the California Guideline Child Support Calculation Formula. This guideline creates a preliminary assessment of child support by looking at factors including:
- The time that each parent has the child in their custody and control
- Gross income of each parent
- Tax filing status of each parent
- Child care costs
- Other mandatory expenses
When working through a child support agreement, you need to put the best case forward. The experienced family law attorneys at Kendall Gkikas & Mitchell, LLP can help with that.
