How Is Child Support Determined in California?

California utilizes a statewide formula in order to determine the amount of child support. This formula is highly complex and takes many variables into account in order to come up with this amount.

The calculation is based on the following, and more:

  • Number of children
  • Income per parent
  • Custody situation
  • Tax filing status
  • Tax-deductible expenses

How Long Does Child Support Last?

In California, child support ends when the child turns 18 years old and graduates high school, as long as the child still lives with his or her custodial parent. Support can continue until the child is 19 years old if he or she is still enrolled full-time in high school.

What Happens if You Can't Pay Child Support?

In a situation where you are not able to keep up with your child support payments, you will likely be taken to court for failure to pay. It is important to not only show up, but to show up with skilled representation. In order to make the case go smoothly, start to collect any and all possible records of your personal income as proof that paying the child support order is unreasonable. This can include but is not limited to tax returns and paystubs, or other proof of income available.
