Compassionate Divorce Lawyer Who Recognizes Your Financial And Emotional Struggles

In our state, the child support amount you will contribute or receive will be based on your individual circumstances.

Courts typically use a formula outlined in the California Child Support Guideline Family Code that takes into account factors such as:

  • The income of each parent
  • The amount of time each parent spends with the child
  • Each parent's contribution to health care insurance, child care costs and educational expenses

Since every situation is different, simply providing a support amount calculation for your circumstance isn't feasible. You need representation that is tailored to address your unique needs.

The child support attorney you want on your side is Janice Munoz. She can help provide a preliminary estimation of the amount of both child and spousal support in your situation.
