Child Support: REAL Lawyers Representing YOUR Needs

Child Support Attorneys in Los Angeles

Helping You Overcome Difficult Disputes

Child support refers to payments made from one parent to another to provide financial support for a child. Child support payments are generally made to the parent with legal and/or physical custody of the child, but either parent is able to request support.

Child support payments are intended to cover the child’s:

  • Education
  • Medical needs
  • Food and shelter
  • Extracurricular activities

Child support negotiations have a tendency to lead to contentious divorce disputes. The Los Angeles child support attorneys at The Law Help Center strive to find peaceful and favorable resolutions through mediation and alternative dispute resolution. However, if child support disputes cannot be resolved through civil discussions, we are prepared to represent you in court.

To learn more about how we can help with your child support case, please call us at (213) 810-5559.

How Child Support Is Determined

A California court will calculate and determine the amount of child support that one or both parents must make each month.

When determining child support, the courts consider:

  • How much time each parent spends with their children
  • Each parent’s current and potential income
  • How many children the parents have together
  • The child’s health care and insurance expenses
  • The costs of raising the child, including costs of food, shelter, education, and medical care
  • The cost of transportation for visitation between parents

Failing or refusing to make court-ordered child support payments can lead to severe legal penalties. Our team is prepared to assist you with support enforcement cases if need be.
