California Child Support

California Child Support

Each parent has a legal obligation to provide financial support for their children. Child support is money paid by both parents to meet their childrens’ living and medical expenses​​.

The Court may order either or both parents to make regular child support payments to cover the child/childrens’ living and medical expenses. A child support order will normally include a parent to provide health insurance for the child. In addition to child support, the Court may also order payment for expenses like child care costs, doctor/dental bills not otherwise covered by available health insurance, as well as transportation and other expenses.

The Court sets the amount of child support based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the gross income of the parents, the number of children, and the amount of time the non-custodial parent spends with the children/child.
