Claiming Child Support in Irvine
A common issue in divorce, paternity, and domestic violence cases is the obligation to pay child support when former spouses or partners have common children. California law gives every child the right to claim support from both parents in an amount that will depend on various factors, particularly the income of each parent and the amount of time spent with each.
Parents of a child are ideally given the opportunity to agree on the amount of child support. If both parties fail to agree on the terms, then the court may determine the amount due using California state guidelines.
The custodial parent is usually the party who is awarded child support. When awarded in court, child support is paid monthly and intended to provide food, clothing, education, and medical care for the child or children.
Legal Process for Claiming Child Support
The procedure for obtaining child support can differ depending on whether the child was born while the parents were married or not. For children born of unwed parents, paternity must first be established before the right of support may be enforced.
If your child needs financial support from the other parent, your family law attorney can assess your situation and determine the appropriate legal remedy for obtaining child support. If you are paying too much child support, you may have legal options for lowering it as well.
