Child Support Lawyer Caring & Effective Legal Advocacy

San Diego Child Support Attorneys

How is Child Support Determined?

The amount of child support paid by a non-custodial parent will depend on mostly the monthly net incomes of both parents and the number of children present in the household. There are ways of calculating the amount of child support to be given, and this number will ultimately be decided by the court once all pertinent information has been provided. Unless directed otherwise, child support is typically paid until the child reaches 18 years of age.

When two parents are not together, and a child spends more time with one parent than the other, the other parent must provide child support to pay for expenses related to the child, including:

  • Educational costs
  • Medical expenses
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Shelter
