How Do You Calculate Child Support in California?

California law requires both parents to share the responsibility of financially supporting their child. The amount of financial support each parent is required to pay is based upon his or her current situation. In California, child support is calculated using a standard formula.

Factors included in the standard formula include:

  • Annual gross income earned by both parents
  • Tax exemptions
  • Amount of time each child spends in the physical custody of a parent
  • Child care costs incurred by each parent
  • Required union dues
  • Health insurance costs
  • Mandatory retirement contributions
  • Income of a new spouse
  • Hardship deductions for extraordinary health expenses, catastrophic losses, or expenses related to the basic care of another child who lives with a parent under certain circumstances

Contact our Murrieta child support attorneys online or by calling (951) 900-3342 and request a consultation to discuss your questions and concerns about child support.
