Receiving Child Support in California
One of the most nerve-wracking aspects of Dissolution is the financial uncertainty created by the splitting of the household—suddenly there are two sets of bills to pay. All divorces involve a reduction in the lifestyle of the family involved. At Nader, Naraghi & Woodcock, APLC, our goal is to minimize that financial impact on the children.
Going to court can be like spinning a Roulette Wheel—you never know where the ball is going to land. Will the Judge apply the law correctly? In litigation, Child support Payees in California might find that the court:
- Bases the child support they receive on the income the other parent erroneously claims on their tax return—leaving it up to them to prove differently with an expensive expert.
- Assumes that they can snap their fingers and obtain high-paying employment, and bases their child support order on this imaginary salary.
- Doesn't take into account the additional costs involved in raising children—such as extracurricular activities and educational and health care costs.
All of these unfair outcomes are within the court's discretion to order—and the impact on your children can be severe.
