How Is Child Support Determined?

A child is entitled to support from both parents. A father's legal obligation is often established through paternity testing. When determining the child support obligation of each parent, the court will consider the incomes of the parents and, if a legal custody and visitation agreement is in place, the amount of time the child spends at the home of each parent.

Our Los Angeles Attorneys Skillfully Represent Fathers

An unmarried father does not automatically have the right to spend time with his child. If you are a father, our lawyers will help you work out a parenting plan arrangement that allows you to participate in custody and visitation. Even if you already have an informal agreement with your child's mother for custody and visitation, it is important to formalize it and guarantee your access to your child. We can help you ensure your rights as a father are always protected.
