Disputes over child support factors may call for legal help

As a previous post here noted, there are many different factors that go into a child support calculation in California. In addition to each parent's income, things like tax consequences, child care expenses, health insurance and the like can also be considered in the calculation.

What factors into a child support calculation?

Previous posts here have discussed various individual factors that California law takes into consideration when it comes to the courts of this state determining the proper amount of child support. It may be helpful to parents in Orange County to have an overview of all the items a court will consider.

Requirements for California prenuptial agreements

As is the case in other states, Orange County, California, couples are allowed under California law to enter in to prenuptial agreements. Not only can these types of agreements head off divorce problems down the road, they can also help even happily married couples who may have children from a prior relationship or who just want additional clarity about what happens when either they or their spouse dies.

More on how college expenses work in terms of child support

A previous post on this blog explained that child support in California ends when a child turns 18 or until either he or she graduates or until age 19. In other words, there is no legal authority for a judge, no matter how much he or she might want to, to order a parent to pay for his or her child's college education.
