Paying Child Support Is A Necessity, Not A Punishment

Child support was never meant to be a punishment for divorce and should not be viewed as such. Paying or getting payments for the care of your child or children is part of your duty as their parent.

At the Family Law Offices of Glen L. Rabenn, we understand that you may still have unresolved emotions after your divorce. But your children should not be the ones to face the consequences. For this reason, it is important to reach an agreement that has their best interest in mind.

How The State Of California Determines What You Will Pay

We know that it is not uncommon for disgruntled ex-spouses to use child support as a way to spite one another. However, our attorney will work to help you and your ex reach a fair and reasonable resolution.

When calculating child support payments, the state of California will take into consideration:

  • Both parent's incomes and financial status
  • The custody or visitation arrangements
  • Tax deductions that either parents may have
  • Child care expenses for either one of the parents
  • Any required payroll deductions

The cost of child rearing can be steep and not something that only one parent should bear alone. If you are pursuing child support or require assistance with negotiating a fair sum, talk to us today.
