What Is Child Support?
If you have primary custody of a child and earn less than the secondary custodian, you are usually entitled to child support. Child support calculations can be simple if there is no fight about gross incomes of the parties and a custodial parenting plan has already been established. In fact, many paternity lawsuits are filed by the parents themselves in such situations because California offers a free support calculator on line.
For those with more complex income pictures, a through understanding of such fine points as self-employment income, hidden income, unusual sources of income, hardship calculations, or whether a parent is working to his or her capacity will complicate the amount of support paid or received, and will require a lawyer's help.
Expenses that the court will consider can include the following:
- Medical expenses
- Health insurance
- Daycare / nanny care
- Transportation costs
- School tuition
- Extra-curricular activities
- Step children
- Other child support orders
