Child Support Caring & Effective Legal Advocacy

Child Support: An Overview

San Diego Child Support Lawyer

When two parents are not together, and a child spends more time with one parent than the other, the other parent must provide child support to pay for expenses related to the child, including:

  • Educational costs
  • Medical expenses
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Shelter

The amount of child support paid by a non-custodial parent will depend on mostly the monthly net incomes of both parents and the number of children present in the household. There are ways of calculating the amount of child support to be given, and this number will ultimately be decided by the court once all pertinent information has been provided. Unless directed otherwise, child support is typically paid until the child reaches 18 years of age.

Due to the fact that child support is one of the most widely contested issues in divorce and family law, it is important to hire a San Diego family attorney to handle the situation. Whether you are a custodial parent and are trying to obtain the financial support your child needs, or are a non-custodial parent who is worried about paying more child support than you can afford, a lawyer from our firm can assist you. At Cleary & Hammond, LLP, we help individuals falling on both sides of child support disagreements, and will do whatever we can to help improve your situation.

Financial obligations can change over time and what was once an affordable amount of child support for a parent may become too much to handle after unemployment, career change, or medical issues. In cases where the amount of child support needs to be amended, a family attorney from our team can help with a modification to reduce the amount of child support to be paid, or in some cases, increase it. No matter what your specific needs are, a skilled and dedicated lawyer can do a great deal to resolve your child support situation.
