Child Support in Los Angeles

Both parents have an obligation to provide financial support to their minor children and in situations of divorce or separation child support arrangements must be determined. Whether a child is natural, adopted, born during marriage or to a couple that decided not to marry, the child is owed a statutory duty of support. Child support is used to cover the basic costs of raising the child, and its uses include, but are not limited to:

  • Food
  • Shelter
  • Education
  • Medical care
  • Clothing

What factors determine child support in California?

Many factors are considered when determining the amount of child support payments, including both parent’s economic circumstances, the needs of the child and how many children there are. In most situations, the non-custodial parent pays child support to the custodial parent because it is assumed that by maintaining custody they already contribute considerable resources to the support of the child. Child support is typically provided until a child reaches the age of 18, unless the court directs otherwise.
