The attorneys at Moreno Family Law Firm can assist you in having the maximum possible time with your children.
Alimony and child support are determined by complicated formulas in California. There are computer programs that take all the factors into consideration when calculating support.
Child support, in brief, is determined by the respective incomes of the father and mother, and by how much time each parent has with the child.
It's Not the Software — It's the User
It might seem that child support computer programs can be run by anyone and produce the same results, but this is not the case. We are very experienced with the changes that can result if you don't carefully consider bonuses, overtime, self-employment income, 401(k) deductions, cafeteria plans, income from the exercise of stock options, and various other things that can affect the amount of income available to pay support.
In addition, we have handled cases where one spouse is not earning up to their potential. Sometimes these reasons are legitimate, and sometimes they are not. We have dealt with cases involving homemakers and stay-at-home dads, as well as people suffering from substance abuse or depression.
