Factors that Determine Child Support

The state of California places the interests and well being of the child as the top priority in any child support agreement. Under state law, the child should share in the standard of living of both parents. With this directive in mind, it is understood that both parents should contribute to the child's upbringing equally; either through providing housing, food, and care or monetary assistance to ensure the child receives these essentials.

When factoring the amount of child support to be paid, the court will examine two main factors:

  • income of each parent
  • the amount of time each parent is to spend with the child

Raising a child in your home can present many costs that may not be immediately apparent. A well-versed Ventura family law attorney will be able to guide you through the process and negotiate a fair and balanced child support agreement.
