How will Child Support be determined?
Mandatory California guidelines apply to child support issues. The amount is determined by a formula that involves many factors including the percentage of custodial time with each parent, income factors, tax matters and certain deductions. An unemployed spouse may be imputed with income as if he or she were employed. An attorney can help determine the appropriate child support and assure that all appropriate aspects are considered.
How are Child Support payments enforced?
The parent who has been designated by the court to make payments for child support may have his or her wages garnished, with payments made through the employer. Failure to pay child support can result in the suspension of licenses, interceptions in tax refunds, fines and jail time.
