If you and your spouse share children, you may be most concerned about how your divorce will affect them. Children are often most affected by the turmoil and arguments involved in a divorce. Any chance you have to preserve amicability and avoid litigation is important.

Our child support lawyer in San Diego recommends trying to come to an agreement out of court whenever necessary, in order to protect the best interest of your children.

Key Aspects of Child Support in San Diego

One subject that is often contested by our clients is the topic of child support payments. You and your spouse may be having difficulty deciding how much will be paid and by who, depending on whether the child custody schedule has been decided.

Our legal team of San Diego child support lawyers at Gordon D. Cruse, APLC understands how frustrating it can be to argue with your spouse about money, especially when it comes to money for your children.

Calculating Child Support: What You Need to Know

Typically the parent who does not have primary custody will be asked to pay child support payments to the primary parent. There is no guarantee of how much you will receive, which is why retaining the services of a San Diego child support attorney is very important.

There are a number of factors the judge considers when making decisions about child support, including:

  • Daily living expenses
  • Children's health care needs
  • Children's schooling needs
  • The existing/proposed child custody schedule
  • The current income of each spouse
  • The earning capacity of each spouse

Modifying Child Support: When and How

Life happens and sometimes situations can change with your health or job. Under certain circumstances, you may be able to petition for a child support modification. Reasons for a child support modification may include:

  • Job loss and significant reduction in pay
  • New health issues
  • Changes in the child's educational needs
  • Changes in childcare
If you believe that one of these situations applies to your circumstances, please reach out to our San Diego child support attorneys today.
