Under California law, both parents have the duty to provide financial support for their children. Child support can be a part of a dissolution of marriage or can be a separate action between parents who are divorced or who are not married. The Law Offices of Evan Braunstein in Los Angeles provides fixed fee Los Angeles child support services based on our understanding and experience dealing with the financial and personal aspects of child support.
In all Los Angeles child support cases, the court is required to determine the proper guideline child support. Guideline child support is a formula designed to take into account the financial circumstances of the parents and the needs of the children, including the parents’ incomes, visitation schedules, tax issues, and the children’s child care, medical, and educational expenses. A change in how any of these is factored into the calculations can greatly affect the guideline support. When support is contested, it is usually one or several of these factors that is actually being disputed.
