Grand Terrace Child Support Lawyer

Disputes in a divorce can range from the value of a family business to the equitable division of retirement accounts and everything in between. Most often, a serious disagreement will arise regarding support — for both the child and the spouse.

In California, the determination of child support is largely formulaic. Certain factors are input into a computer equation, and child support is calculated. Even with this relatively straightforward approach, clients can certainly benefit from the guidance of a skilled lawyer.

Many factors, such as the income of both parties, must be fully researched and accurately listed. When one spouse is a business owner, independent contractor or is otherwise self-employed, the determination of actual income can be rather challenging. Additionally, factors such as child care, health insurance and extracurricular activities must be accurately included in the calculation. Do not hesitate to schedule a consultation with a Grand Terrace child support attorney at the Law Offices of Sherrie L. Davidson, Inc..

Grand Terrace Spousal Support Attorney

Conversely, the determination of spousal support is largely based on the agreement of the parties through mediation or before a judge. Numerous factors will be carefully examined, including:

  • Length of marriage
  • Earning capacity of both parties
  • Potential for career advancement of both parties
  • Whether a stay-at-home parent might need additional schooling to enter the workforce

While this calculation starts with a computer program, in the end the determination is made by the parties involved. A skilled attorney can guide you through a discussion about support, support modification and enforcement. Contact our firm today.
