California Child Support

Child Support Lawyer in Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks & Ventura County

Once child custody has been determined, you may be required to establish terms for a child support agreement. In determining the cost of child support that a non-custodial parent may need to pay, the court follows guidelines set forth by the state. Courts keep the child's best interests in mind when making these determinations.

Child support guidelines help calculate a minimum amount of support that a parent may have to pay and are based off a few deciding factors, including:

  • Parent's employment
  • Expenses
  • Cost of raising a child

No, you are absolved from financial support once the child turns 18. However, if the child is still in high school, payment can continue until 19. There are other factors that influence payment duration, such as special needs, so contact our office today to learn more.
