How Do I Enforce or Modify Child Support?

Child support orders are not permanent. You can ask the court to modify your child support if there has been a "significant change in circumstance." This can include, but is not limited to:

  • Job loss
  • Pay cuts
  • Remarriage of the custodial parent

You might also need to ask the court to enforce a child support order if the non-custodial parent has fallen behind on payments and is showing no effort to pay what is due. Our Murrieta child support lawyers can help you enforce or modify child support in Riverside County!

How Is Child Support Calculated 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
