Understanding Child Support in California

The court presumes that each parent will contribute financially to the upbringing of their child. Child support is a monthly payment that parents make to help cover the costs of raising a child. Typically, the parent who has less parenting time, or the non-custodial parent, makes payments to the custodial parent. Sometimes, the court chooses to order both parents to pay child support.

The general stipulation is that parents must pay child support until the child turns 18.

Exceptions to this rule include:

  • Support may continue until the child turns 19, so long as the child is still in high school and lives with a parent
  • Support may continue for a longer period of time if parents choose to do so
  • Support may continue indefinitely if the child is unable to become self-supporting due to a disability
  • Support may end early if the child marries or registers a domestic partnership
  • Support may end early if the child joins the military
  • Support may end early if the child becomes self-supporting

Calculating Child Support Payments

In California, child support is based on a statewide guideline. Calculating payments is often a complex process and is best handled by experienced divorce attorneys.

Child support payments are determined by considering a number of factors including:

  • The number of children
  • The income of each parent
  • The parenting time of each parent
  • The parents' tax filing statuses
  • The parents' tax-deductible expenses
