Monterey Child Support Lawyer

It can be daunting as a single mom - or even a single dad - to be the one having to worry about buying everything your child requires to live a happy and healthy life. You should hold the other parent accountable to help you pay for what your child needs.

A knowledgeable attorney in Monterey can help you get the child support you deserve.

How does the court calculate child support?

The court looks at both parents' incomes and applies a percentage to it based on the number of children they have together. The court also considers other factors, such as

  • How much time each parent spends with the child
  • The financial needs of the child
  • The standard of living the child would have if the parents were still together
  • The age of the child
  • Any special needs the child may have

What qualifies as proof of child support?

The non-custodial parent's proof of income can come in many forms, including:

  • Pay stubs
  • Tax returns
  • W-II forms
  • Bank statements
  • Asset statements
  • Paternity test (if the father is denying being biologically related)

If the non-custodial parent is self-employed, the court will look at their business records to determine how much income they have.

The court can also impute income to a parent if it finds that the parent is underemployed or has intentionally suppressed their income to avoid paying child support.

If you are a single parent in Monterey and need help getting child support, contact an experienced attorney today. They can help you get the child support you and your child deserve.

What if the other parent lives in another state?

If the other parent lives in another state, you can still file for child support in California. The Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) is a federal law that allows for this. You will need to file a Petition for Establishment of Support and have it served on the other parent.

What if the other parent is in the military?

If the other parent is in the military, you can still file for child support. You will need to provide proof of their military status and income information to the court.
