Child Support Lawyers in Santa Clarita

Need Assistance with Child Support?

When you get divorced, there are certain issues that can lead to disputes between you and your spouse, especially if you have children. Child support issues, like figuring out if you will be required to pay, how often, and how much, is an important piece of your divorce agreement.

As a parent, you may be required to pay child support to your ex-spouse, depending on the circumstances involved in your child custody and/or visitation orders. At Gharibian & Oliver, we help parents like yourself get through the various issues that may arise during a divorce case. Whether you are trying to get your spouse to pay the amount of child support you feel is adequate or you are being asked to pay child support, we may be able to help.

How Do I Know if I Have to Pay Child Support?

Typically, the parent who does not have sole custody of the child or children will pay the parent who is taking primary care of the child until they have graduated from high school or reached the age of 18. While you may decide to settle child support terms out of court, if you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement, you may need the assistance of an accomplished Santa Clarita divorce attorney to represent you and provide you with dedicated legal guidance.

The court determines child support payments based on the following factors:

  • The cost of educating the child
  • The cost of caring for the child
  • Any special expenses the child may need
  • The custody order issued by the court
