Calculating Child Support

Calculating how much a parent will be required to pay in child support is specific to each situation and varies based on a variety of factors and variables. Typically, the courts recommend that the parents negotiate a set price with the help of a mediator, thus avoiding extended court hearings and additional legal fees. As a La Mesa child support attorney, I believe that this is the best course to take, as it can protect the family dynamics from suffering any additional pain and strain.

When an agreement cannot be reached between parents, a judge will decide the amount that must be paid in child support based on a set calculation.

Child support may be calculated based on such factors as:

  • Each parent's current income
  • Total amount of children that parents have together
  • The amount of time that the child spends with each parent
  • The tax filing status of each parent
  • Whether the parent has other children that he or she is supporting
  • Health insurance expenses
  • Retirement contributions
