A key element of any divorce of parents is child support. Your child deserves to feel comfortable, happy, and secure after your divorce concludes, which means maintaining their current standard of living; no matter who gets child custody. Child support is meant to provide finances to the parent with the most child custody responsibility or the lesser income to ensure the child is always well off.
Calculating child support fairly and in a way that protects your child’s best interests first and foremost is not always easy, though. Indeed, it is often a point of contention between divorcing parents. To move ahead amicably and steadily, contact Carlos Navarrete Law Firm in Hanford, California. Our family lawyers have more than 23 years of combined legal experience we can put to good use for you and your family in this trying time.
In California, you and your spouse have the option to create a child support agreement on your own and shaped to your own expectation. The agreement needs to be “fair,” though, and it absolutely must benefit your child. Otherwise, the court will likely reject the agreement and make its own child support calculations using the state’s preset guidelines.
