divorce is ever easy when there are children involved, this process can become
even more stressful and wrought with emotion. For this reason, it is especially
important that you do not hesitate to contact an experienced lawyer as
soon as possible. In the terms of a divorce, the court will lay out payment
plans that one parent will pay to the other (usually to the primary
custody holder) to help cover the care of the child.
How Child Support is Determined
There are several different factors that the court will take into consideration
when deciding on the child support payment plans, and it is important
that you do not waste any time in seeking out the necessary amount of
legal representation. The judge will take into consideration such things as:
- The parents' finances
- The ages of the children
- Any health conditions
- The children's education
No matter if you are seeking child support from your spouse or you are
looking to ensure that you are paying a fair amount, it is important that
you do not go without the correct amount of legal support.
Team Up With an Family Attorney in Newport Beach
When child support must be determined during the procedures of a divorce,
the decision will be made as part of the agreements that are ultimately
settled upon in the terms and conditions of the official divorce agreement.
Generally, the procedure will require one parent (under the representation
of an attorney) to make an appearance before the courthouse or even a
local magistrate where an application will be filed for child support.
Sometimes, a complaint can be made as well, if it serves the purpose of
igniting a child support motion.
General information will need to be collected regarding both parents involved
in the divorce in order to determine who should be responsible for making
these payments and who will be receiving the payments. You should be prepared
to provide identifying information such as your date of birth, social
security number, as well as those of your children. You can also expect
to be asked about the length of your marriage, the financial aspects involved
in the marriage and even provide certificates of birth to prove that each
spouse is the birth parent of the children involved.
