We can represent you in or out of court to make sure your rights as a parent and those of your children are protected.
Child Support Information: Determining Contribution
Determining how much child support each parent is responsible for contributing is established by a formula. The total income of both parents are added up to total their community income. After that’s recognized, the court will look at the percentage that both you and your partner contributed. You can even run your own calculations. The goal of both child support lawyers is to keep the child’s standard of living as close to normal as possible.
