Child support is the term used for payments or transfers of money or assets from a non-custodial parent to the custodial parent for the care and support of children when the relationship between the parents has been terminated.
California has a specific system for determining child support payments based on a complicated formula. There are many variables such as payment of health insurance premiums, payment of private tutoring, schooling or needed counseling for children. It is also important to consider the tax benefits and penalties for different child support options.
You and your children have legal rights and protections, which need to be addressed when child support amounts are calculated. Competent legal and tax advice is vital.
