Every parent has an obligation to contribute to the support of his or her child. When a child's parents are not married, the court will issue an order regarding support payments that are intended to provide the custodial parent with the necessary resources to provide for the child. At Stolar & Associates, our Los Angeles child support lawyers can explain the child support guidelines and how they will affect your specific situation.
California family courts follow standard state guidelines for child support. In most situations, the calculation of child support is a simple and straightforward matter and the child support order is based on the incomes of both parents and the amount of time the child spends at each residence.

The court has the discretion, however, to vary from the guidelines if a child's needs or the resources or situation of a parent are exceptional (as in high-earner situations).
