A few things to know about child support

Going through a divorce in California is an emotional process. When there are children involved, the situation becomes even more complicated. The state understands that raising a child is expensive. For this reason, child support is usually given to one of the ex-spouses so that they will bear the brunt of financially supporting the children.

Individuals who are going through the divorce process and have children may be interested in learning about the considerations that are looked at when it comes to child support. It could help them frame the conversation. For one thing, it is good to know that child support is usually modifiable. Even with guidelines set out, there is definitely flexibility when it comes to child support. The courts may listen to parents as they lay out arrangements that they would like to make.

The best interests of the children are looked at when it comes to what decisions are made about child custody and child support. Family courts want the children to be able to maintain the same standard of living if possible.

Child support can be adjusted at a future date if changes take place for either ex-spouse. For example, the child support arrangement may be modified if one individual experiences a substantial increase in their income. Or, they may be modified if one individual loses their job.

It is good for individuals to be aware that child support payments do not affect taxes in a positive or negative way; they are outside of the tax system. Only one individual can claim any children in the family as dependents, however.

If an individual has a child support dispute, they may decide to speak with a family law attorney. The attorney may examine the situation and provide legal advice. They are likely to look at everyday expenses, the best interests of the child, delinquent payments and other issues when providing advice.
