A white block cutout of a family stands in front of a gavel, symbolizing child support.Child support laws have been enacted to ensure that children are financially supported by their parents in the event of a divorce.

Under California family law, every parent has a duty to provide sufficient monetary support to ensure the safety and welfare of their children in terms of housing, clothing, medical care, schooling, and other necessities. Official guidelines are used to calculate child support payments based on various factors. Despite this, parents who are in disagreement about the matter may find themselves in need of legal counsel.

How Child Support Is Determined in Newport Beach, CA

In Orange County, child support is calculated by a statewide formula that takes into account a variety of factors related to both parents. These factors include:

  • The income of both parents
  • The amount of time the child spends with each parent
  • Childcare expenses
  • Health insurance expenses
  • Mortgage interest
  • Property taxes
  • Tax exemptions
  • Other expenses that have a bearing on the finances of both parents, including hardships

Calculating child support in Newport Beach can be a very complex matter, especially in the case of complicated income sources, self-employment, and other financial factors that can be difficult to calculate. Our team of child support attorneys in Newport Beach has experience in handling all of these factors when it comes to arriving at a fair settlement.

Is Child Support Fair? Can Child Support Take an Entire Paycheck?

While it often feels unfair, child support is intended to be fair in that it holds both parents responsible for the care of their children. One parent cares for the children (the custodial parent) while one parent pays for their needs (the non-custodial parent).

So, how much child support will you be required to pay in Orange County? Can child support take your entire paycheck? No, child support will not take your entire paycheck, but you will be required to pay a percentage of your income based on the number of children you are supporting and the amount of parenting time you spend with them.
