Our lawyers understand the provisions of the California child support guidelines and will work with you to ensure that the child support determination is realistic and based on all sources of income. It is important to understand that the guidelines only establish a minimum amount that is required to be paid. The parties can agree to higher payments. We will work with you to help identify a level of child support that is in the best interests of your children.
Spousal support or alimony in California is not automatic, but may be granted based on an evaluation of a number of factors, including the length of the marriage and how the marital assets were distributed. Other factors the court may consider include: the ability to pay and needs of the parties, age and health of the parties, any history of domestic violence, and earning capacity, among others.
