Spouses embroiled in a child support dispute tend to have strong opinions about how much child support ought to be paid. Usually, the paying spouse feels it’s fair to pay less, and the receiving spouse feels it’s fair to receive more. At Rosen & Rosen, we have represented spouses on both sides of these disputes — and we’re intimately familiar with the complex legal and personal perspectives that go into such matters.
One of the first steps we take when a new child support client comes to us is to analyze the same facts and evidence that an Orange County family court will review when making its decision. This information includes:
— The income of both parents
— The class of lifestyle enjoyed by the family
— The children’s financial requirements
— The percentage of custody held by the parents
After reviewing this information, we will apply the same calculation formulas that Orange County judges use to calculate the amount of child support owed. These standards are standardized and highly accurate for predicting the base amount of child support owed — nevertheless, depending on the facts and evidence listed above, the amount of calculated child support could change.
At Rosen & Rosen, our lawyers will use their knowledge of the law, skill as negotiators and diplomatic tact to advocate on your behalf. We will, at all times, seek a favorable outcome in your child support dispute case, while educating you on your legal rights and options along every step of the way. If you need help with your child support or family law dispute, our legal team is available to help.
