Who Pays Child Support?

Federal and state laws require both the father and mother to pay child support. In most cases the parent awarded primary custody of their child is paid child support by the other parent. If both parties are married at the time the child is conceived, then both parties are responsible for supporting their child in a divorce. If not married at the time, the court will order the parentage to be determined in order for the child to have a legal father.

Has a Child Support Request Negatively Affected You?

  • Have your wages been garnished?
    • Did you know that California may garnish up to 50% of your wages for unpaid child support?
  • Are you unable to afford your child support request?
    • If you have changed jobs, or recently lost your job and are no longer able to afford your payments you may be able to request a modification to the child support agreement. Don’t wait to contact a divorce lawyer today. Modifications to child support in court can take a long time.
  • Has your license been suspended due to child support payments in arears?
    • If you are unable to work due to the suspension of your license and therefore cannot make child support payments, we can help put a plan in motion to get it reinstated.
