At Fontes Law Group, we understand that disputes over child support can be emotionally and financially challenging for both parents and their children. We are here to support you and your family during this difficult time, and will work diligently to ensure that the amount of child support ordered accurately reflects the true income and expenses of both parties.
California has established guidelines for determining child support, which consider factors such as the incomes of both parents, the number of children involved, health insurance costs, and the amount of time the children spend with each parent. We will guide you through these factors and gather all the necessary financial information to ensure that the child support order properly applies the guidelines and protects the best interests of the children.
Our team is committed to helping you navigate the legal process with compassion and understanding.
At our firm, we understand that creating a trust or fund to secure child support and education expenses can be a necessary step in some cases. We are here to support you and provide guidance through this process. If the court determines that it is necessary to set aside a portion of community or separate assets in a trust or fund for your child’s support and education, we can provide expert litigation support to ensure that this process is carried out properly. Our team is committed to helping you navigate the legal process with compassion and understanding, and to finding solutions that protect the best interests of your child.
A California child support order may be modified if there has been a significant change in circumstances, such as a change in the income of either parent, a change in the amount of time the child spends with each parent, or the child having new financial needs such as medical expenses. At Fontes Law Group, we have experience and expertise in handling these types of “changed circumstances,” and will work on behalf of both the paying parent and the parent receiving support to ensure that any modification to the child support order accurately reflects the new circumstances and continues to provide adequate support for the child.
