Getting Child Support

Obtaining Child Support Payments

Guidance from a Riverside Family Lawyer

Raising a child as a single parent entails a number of expenses to cover the child's living and medical needs. In most situations, in order for that parent to raise the child, it is necessary for the other to share some of the financial responsibility. This financial assistance is called child support. Determining the amount of child support to be paid tends to be a highly contentious issue in most divorces. If you are in need of child support, you should speak to a Riverside child custody attorney.

Determining Child Support Payments in California

The amount of child support you may be entitled to receive will vary depending on your and your ex-spouse's monthly income as well as the amount of time your child spends with you and your ex-spouse individually. If you are the primary caregiver, it is far more likely that you would be able to receive child support payments. If your ex-spouse has sole custody or if you share custody of the child, whether you are able to receive child support will depend on your unique case. That is why it is crucial that you do what you can to involve a legal professional to help you seek a swift and positive resolution.
