What Is Considered for Child Support in California?

Under California law, both parents are mutually responsible for supporting their child, even if they do not have custody of the child. When parents do not live together, child support payments can be ordered to ensure that children are financially supported.

When calculating child support, the state of California uses the income shares model. This involves a complicated formula that bases the amount of child support on the income of both parents and the number of children.

Other factors considered when calculating child support include:

  • The percentage of time each parent spends with the child
  • Childcare costs paid by either parent
  • Mandatory payroll deductions
  • Income tax reductions
  • Bonuses and commissions

In most cases, child support payments are determined based on the amount calculated using the formula. However, in situations where these guidelines are not considered fair or reasonable, a judge may alter a child support award to a higher or lower amount.
