Assisting California Parents With Issues Of Child Support

At the law office of John T. Chamberlin, Attorney at Law, I work hard to bring clarity and peace of mind to parents struggling with the difficult legal process of divorce. When so many things seem uncertain, I help clients understand the California child support guidelines and how those laws affect their individual circumstances.

For a clear explanation of what you can expect and committed legal guidance from a knowledgeable attorney in your child support case, please contact my Pleasanton, California, law office today.

How Is Child Support Calculated In California?

California law bases child support determinations on a mathematical formula that considers the individual incomes of both parents. I have an in-depth understanding of this formula and what factors are considered when making child support calculations.

I use the same technology and software to provide accurate child support calculations that the court uses, and I have significant experience using this software and applying the formula. I can provide my divorce clients with an accurate calculation and some level of certainty as to what to expect.

I will gather all relevant information and analyze what it means to your situation. Child support is based primarily on the net income of each parent. I perform thorough and in-depth discovery of relative tax information, eligible deductions, income and all other factors considered by the formula and the courts.

After Your Divorce Or Split

Sometimes, after a divorce has been finalized and child support amounts have been determined, it may become necessary to re-evaluate the original order. If a significant change in the circumstances of one or both parents occurs, I can represent parents in modifications of existing child support arrangements. I provide my clients with all necessary information regarding child support rights and information related to add-on expenses like medical/health care, child care, education and activities.

In addition to my service to clients in child support matters, I represent their interests in determining alimony and spousal support arrangements.

With all of the uncertainty related to a divorce, clients appreciate my dedicated efforts to keep them informed about what lies ahead and what they can realistically expect in their child support case.
