Acting In Your Child's Best Interests
Child support is the money paid by one parent to the other for the support of their child on a day-to-day basis, and it is resolved during the divorce or separation process. This agreement is a serious and very important obligation. At The Buncher Law Corporation, our child support attorneys focus on protecting your financial rights and well-being, while keeping your child's best interests in mind.
How Is Child Support Determined?
No doubt, dealing with child custody and visitation issues are one of the most emotionally trying experiences in your life. Once a determination by court or settlement has been made, you must turn to the financial implications - whether you are seeking child support payments or will be required to pay them.
California courts determine the amount of child support that should be paid primarily by considering:
- How much time each parent spends with the child
- Each parent's actual or "imputed" income
Our experienced child support attorneys will work to make sure the correct amount of support is being paid or received. Your child's well-being is extremely important to us.
