Children need support from both parents to give them the best chance possible in life. While visitation and interacting with your child is certainly important, financial assistance is often necessary as well. When parents have decided to divorce or to end a romantic relationship, one parent may have more time with the child as part of a custody arrangement. That parent may require additional financial support from the other parent to ensure that the child has the best life possible.
Child support in California is based in large part on the financial abilities of the parents and the custodial schedule with the child. J.E.A. Family Law will help you present this information in a way that will allow the court to make an informed decision about the appropriate amount of child support. We can also work with both parents to create a child support plan that makes sense for your situation. We want to help you ensure that your child has the resources he or she needs to thrive.
