Child Support

Child Support is required in the State of California.  Many options are available to determine the correct amount and the payment schedule for child support.  There are also other considerations such as health insurance, daycare, extracurricular costs for your children.  Child Support can be handled by the Superior Court or by the Department of Child Support Services.

Spousal Support/Alimony is in the discretion of the Court.  There are many factors which affect both the amount and the length of time a party is entitled to Spousal Support.  The Court looks to both the needs of the support party and the ability of the other party to provide for those needs.  It is important to have an attorney who can navigate the Court process when it comes to Spousal Support.
