Child Support Attorneys in Temecula

Experienced & Trusted Family Lawyers

Kids cost money. From music lessons to after-school sports, from new shoes to braces, your children need financial support. If you and your partner are filing for divorce, you may be wondering how your children will remain supported after you have gone your separate ways. Child support is one way to ensure that your children receive the money and care they need to maintain a comparable quality of life after the divorce.

At Camarata & Fuller, LLP, our Temecula child support attorneys understand the balance between wanting to support your children and needing to support yourself. As certified family law specialists, we attempt to develop favorable solutions for all involved so that your family thrives in its new form.

Understanding Child Support Calculations in California 

The amount of child support parents pay is based on the amount of time the children are with them. A split custody arrangement will result in a lower overall child support payment. An arrangement where one parent has sole physical custody will create a higher child support payment for the noncustodial parent.

When determining child support, the court will consider:

  • Each parent's gross income
  • The number of minor children
  • Both parents' ability to work
  • Whether either parent is currently underemployed or unemployed
  • Tax filing status of the parents
  • Amount of time spent with the children
  • Various deductions such as union dues, health care costs, and property taxes

When we work with you on a child support case, we strive to ensure a favorable outcome for you and your children.

Commonly Asked Questions

What Factors Are Taken into Consideration When Determining Child Support?

The amount of child support parents pay is based on the amount of time the children are with them. A split custody arrangement will result in a lower overall child support payment. An arrangement where one parent has sole physical custody will create a higher child support payment for the noncustodial parent. When determining child support, the court will consider each parent's gross income, number of minor children, both parents' ability to work, whether either parent is currently underemployed or unemployed, the tax filing status of the parents, amount of time spent with the children and various deductions such as union dues, health care costs, and property taxes.

Can I Modify My Existing Child Support Order?

It may be possible to modify your existing order if there has been a significant change in circumstances since it was originally issued. These changes could include job loss or gain; change in income; changes to your or your ex-partner’s living arrangements; illness that affects either party’s ability to work; relocation outside California; or increase or decrease in parenting time.

How Long Do I Have to Pay My Court-Ordered Child Support?

In most cases, you must make payments until your dependent turns 18 years old (or 19 if they are still attending high school). If you have joint legal custody and share physical custody equally then payments may end earlier than 18 years old.
