Understanding how child support is awarded in the State of California is important when beginning the dissolution process. Child support is determined by a computer generated program, whereby certain specific information is input (including each parents income and percentage of time each parent has with the child). Based on the information, a child support amount will be determined.

Except for extenuating circumstances, the child support amount determined by the computer program will be the actual amount of child support ordered. In addition to this child support amount, it is typical for each parent to share equally in the following costs:

  • Medical expenses not covered by insurance
  • Child care costs
  • Agreed upon extra-curricular activities

The party entitled to child support (typically the parent earning a lower income then the other parent) can immediately request temporary child support at the onset of the dissolution, legal separation, or otherwise by filing a Request for Order with the court. Once ordered, the child support amount will continue through the resolution of the proceeding by final judgment, where a permanent child support order with then be made.

Child support will continue until the child is eighteen, graduates high school, or court order. At Barnholtz & Kugler, we will be sure you understand the process and be certain that your rights are protected.
