Livermore Child Support Attorneys

In California, the amount of child support that is awarded is generally based on guidelines and a formula governed by state statutes. These guidelines are followed by the courts when determining child support, though there are circumstances that may warrant a deviation from the guidelines. The state formula and the factors that influence child support orders are complex, and our seasoned attorneys have a deep understanding of the factors that go into child support calculations. Our attorneys are prepared to advocate on your behalf to obtain the best child support award the law will permit. Regardless of your situation, it is important that protecting your financial situation and children's best interests be the main goals of the case.

At the Law Offices of Cherie T. Davis, our legal team strives to help parents work toward an efficient and effective resolution to their family law matters. We believe it is important to ensure the focus is on your child or children and you at all times throughout a child support case.

Contact our firm today to discuss your specific child support questions and concerns with a lawyer at our Livermore or Walnut Creek offices.

We handle child support cases for parents who were never married and are dealing with child support. We also work closely with parents who are divorcing, taking care to explain how other issues presented in a divorce proceeding involving children can impact child support. Our attorneys explain how child support calculations are reached and advocate on behalf of parents in court to ensure the calculations are made accurately, taking into consideration all pertinent information.

Child Support Calculations

The formula used to calculate child support in California takes a number of things into consideration. The three main factors include: income of each parent, the number of children and how much time each child spends with each parent. Other financial and situational obligations may be considered, such as day care costs, health care costs, other children and living situations.

Since the amount of child support is set by the court and must be followed, any changes that need to be made to this order must go through the court as well. Whether seeking to establish a child support order or modify an existing order, our attorneys have nearly 30 years' combined experience dealing with child support and are prepared to advocate for our clients.

Child Support And Child Custody

Child support is intrinsically linked to custody and parenting time arrangements, calculating support based on both parents' income and the amount of time they spend caring for their child. Our firm can provide you with the help you need in all child support and child custody issues.
