Factors for Determining Child Support

Child support payments are determined by state guidelines which encompass several factors, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Income of father and/or earnings ability
  • Income of mother and/or earnings ability
  • Each parent's parenting time

We will sit down with you and work through these numbers in order to help you obtain fair and equitable child support orders.

Factors for Determining Spousal Support

There are many factors in determining spousal support, many of which are identified in family code section 4320. These include length of marriage, who stayed home to raise the family, marital standard of living, among others. I will personally discuss all factors with you as they apply to your situation.
