California uses a highly complicated algebraic formula for use when calculating a child support obligation. This formula takes into account numerous factors, including parents’ income, number of children, and how much time each parent spends with and is responsible for the children.
Due to the complexity of the statutory child support formula, Family Law judges use computer programs such as Dissomaster and X-
Aside from the parents’ timeshares and incomes, California’s child support guidelines also require consideration of the following:
Number of Total Tax Exemptions Per Parent
Health Insurance Premiums
Day Care Costs
Mandatory Retirement Deductions
Possible Hardship Deductions for Additional Children
If child support is going to be a factor in your divorce, you want an attorney who has a detailed and clear understanding of how guideline factors can affect a child support ruling. Monrovia Divorce Attorney Michael Donnelly has been representing parties in child support matters since 1986, and he possesses the experience required to ensure that all of these factors are taken into account when the Court is issuing a child support judgment.
Unlike Child Support, under California Law Spousal Support (Alimony) is discretionary. This means that the judge has the judicial discretion to grant or deny a petition for Spousal Support. Prior to issuing a ruling regarding Alimony, the Court will review several factors on a case by case basis, including:
Age of the Parties
Contributions made towards the Education of the Other Spouse
Duration of the Marriage
Health of the Parties
Income Available to Each Party
Level of Education
Standard of Living during the Marriage
If Alimony is going to be at issue in your case, you need a highly trained and qualified Family Law Attorney who will fight vigorously for you! Mr. Donnelly will review your case with you and determine if, based on his experience, the Court will be inclined to issue an alimony order in your case. If we are unable to successfully negotiate Spousal Support, Attorney Michael Donnelly will aggressively litigate the issue before the Family Court Judge.
