Child Support

Your child has a right to receive financial (and emotional) support from both of his or her parents.  Child support obligations generally last until the child turns 18.  In California, courts use statutory formulas to calculate child support.  The amount of your monthly child support payments depends on several factors, including your income and the amount of time your child lives with you.

Child support orders are subject to modification to reflect changes in a parent’s financial circumstances.  Salary increases, layoffs, or changes in child custody arrangements can lead to an adjustment in the amount of your monthly child support payments.

If you have a child support issue, please contact the Law Office of Matthew J. Jensen for a consultation.
