Child support laws govern the legal obligations of parents, ensuring they financially support their children following a divorce. Finding the best child support lawyer is crucial to the well being of your family and especially your children.

What Are California Child Support Laws?

Child support laws deal with the requirement of parents to contribute financially to the care of their children by providing funds to pay for their child's needs such as medical care, housing, clothing, and schooling, for example. Parents will often disagree on what is fair and seek out legal help to resolve these matters. California has specific guidelines and equations designed to calculate the share of child support a parent may have to provide.
