Factors Involved in Calculating Child Support

Similar to many other contentious issues involved in divorce, child support can often bring disputes and arguments—even in the most peaceful proceedings. Whether you and your spouse want to resolve matters between yourselves or need to take your case to the court, it is imperative that you have legal counsel throughout this time. Regardless of the details of your case, the court will have to approve a support document to ensure that it meets the requirements, more specifically, that it is in your child's best interests.

In general, the following factors are used to calculate support:

  • Each parent's monthly income
  • The health insurance and medical needs of the child
  • How much time the child will spend with the non-custodial parent
  • The number of children that are depending on support
  • Amount of alimony, if any, non-custodial parent is paying
  • Any other factors that may affect support needs

While child support orders will be enforced as permanent, there are opportunities for modifications to be made. If you have immediate concerns about a support agreement, you can appeal the court's decision. However, if you run into issues down the road, such as a change of employment or medical concerns, you can petition the court for a modification. The San Bernardino divorce attorney at our firm is here to help!
