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.
