Determining Child Support Payments
According to California Child Support Guidelines, the amount of child support will primarily be calculated by factoring in:
- The number of children requiring support
- Each parent’s incomes
- Any child support payments being made to children from another relationship
- Costs of a child’s health care, day care, travel expenses, etc.
