Bay Area Child Support Attorney in San Francisco
California imposes a duty on both parents to be equally responsible for the support and care of their child. California child support law does not discriminate as to whether the child was born in or out of a marriage or domestic partnership. In California, child support can be sought in a paternity action or part of a dissolution or legal separation of marriage.
When it comes to the amount of child support payment either parent may be responsible for, California has created a Guideline formula that calculates the child support amount based on several factors, but of importance are the incomes of the parents, the time the child spends with each parent, and the number of children of the relationship.
San Francisco family law attorney William Parks, Jr. has extensive experience handling child support issues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. William is well equipped to answer any questions you may have about California Guideline child support orders, enforcement of child support orders, or child support modification.
Most of the time child support issues are tied to other family law issues, such as:
- Divorce or Dissolution of Marriage
- Legal Separation
- Child Custody and Visitation
- Domestic Violence
- Spousal Support/Alimony
