Carmichael Child Support Attorney

You may receive or be entitled to collect child support in Carmichael, California. You might be the one that has to pay the other parent child support. The fact of the matter is that child support is not permanent. In most support cases, the child support order terminates when a child reaches the age of majority or graduates high school. When child support is set by the court, it can be modified when there are new issues to consider. A change in circumstances often results in a support adjustment up or down.

What Does the Family Court Consider When Determining Child Support?

A substantial factor in determining the amount of child support set by the family law court is the timeshare that each parent has. Most of the time, the timeshare is set by the family court in a child custody hearing. If the DCSS is involved, child support hearings are conducted in Sacramento child support court. This is a separate courtroom that where custody hearings occur. Either way, the family court may ask for an actual timeshare. Many times, the actual custody and visitation time differs from that ordered by the court. 

Several other factors are considered to determine the amount of child support one party must pay and the other receive. Sometimes, one parent may be temporarily excused from paying child support. The particular facts and circumstances of your child custody situation are probably unique. Contact our Carmichael child support attorney for an evaluation of your circumstances.

How Long Will My Carmichael Child Support Modification Take to Resolve?

Because the circumstances involved in most child support cases are different, the time it takes to resolve will depend on the issues involved. Child custody and support cases generally remain open until the children turn 18. A change in circumstances can be cause to go back to court. Contact our office for more information on the timeline it may take to resolve your child support matter.

Is Family Law Mediation Necessary in Child Support Cases?

The parties involved in a family law dispute can generally come to an agreement and file a stipulation with the court. When there is a child support dispute and the parties cannot agree, the Sacramento family court will decide the amount of child support that is to be paid. Unless there is a custody issue involved in your child support case, mediation will not be required. If you have a question regarding child support or the Sacramento family court located at 3341 Power Inn Road in Sacramento, contact us.
