Establishing & Modifying Child Support in California

Whether you are going through a divorce, a child custody matter, or a paternity action, establishing child support can be stressful. In California, there are specific guidelines followed by the judge in family court to calculate child support payments, typically using percentages of each parent’s income. With more than 20 years of experience in the field of family law, our legal team is well educated on the laws relating to child support – we are ready to put our experience to work for you.

Our Pasadena-based child support attorney will help you with:

  • Establish child support
  • Modify an existing child support order
  • Enforce child support if the other parent is refusing to pay

Negotiating Spousal Support

Spousal support (or alimony) is often a contentious topic among divorcing spouses. Though spousal support is paid in many divorces, it is not required in 100% of cases. Unless you and your spouse come to an agreement on your own, it is up to the judge to decide.

When determining payments, the court may consider:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s current income and earning potential
  • The lifestyle each spouse enjoyed during the marriage

Our Pasadena spousal support attorneys at The Law Office of Marilyn M. Smith are familiar with the laws that govern alimony payments. Whether you are hoping to avoid alimony payments or you are seeking monthly payments, we can present your case in court and represent your best interests. Your well-being is our priority.
