The issue of child support can be particularly acrimonious because it involves both your children and finances. In California, the amount of child support payments is dependent upon a complex calculation that is based upon a number of factors, such as income, the number of children and the amount of time a parent spends with the children. 

Generally, the parent who cares for a child most of the time tends to receive child support payments. The parent with less parenting time usually makes the payments.  The court decides whether one parent or both will pay child support and the court has discretion to deviate from the standard calculation under certain situations. The court can also modify an existing child support order if there has been a change in circumstances.

Audrey can assist you in pursuing child support payments, requesting a variance from the guidelines or modifying an existing child support order.
