San Jose Divorce Attorney Discusses Child Support Enforcement

California is the most populous state in the United State, which poses numerous challenges for California Child Support enforcement authorities. California Child Support is determined using guidelines established by state law. California Child Support guidelines are based on each parent’s monthly income and the amount of time the child is cared for by each parent. The court will consider income from all sources, whether or not it is reported or taxed under federal law. The income can be in the form of money, property, or even services.

The California courts may away joint or sole custody based on the best interests of the child. There is no preference or presumption for or against joint legal custody, joint physical custody or sole custody. Complete discretion is given to the court. In all cases, the court may appoint a child custody evaluator to determine the best interest of the child.

In most states, court orders providing for support and custody of children are subject to change or modification due to changes in income and circumstances.
