Santa Clara County Child Support Lawyer

Attorney Assisting Clients with Child Support Issues in San Jose and Los Gatos

Los Gatos child support lawyer

California family law focuses on the rights and best interests of children. Child support is meant to provide for the needs of children in cases of family law disputes, divorce, or partnership dissolution, or situations involving unmarried parents.

In a divorce, a court may order child support, or support arrangements may be negotiated through mediation, which allows parents to reach an agreement without the intervention of a judge. With the help of an attorney, you may be able to play an active role in matters of child support and child custody, which is closely related.

Contact the Law Offices of Benita Ventresca to arrange a free consultation and discuss your case. We are here to help you get the results that will make a difference for you and your children.

How Is Child Support Determined?

A noncustodial parent pays child support to the custodial parent to cover living expenses, including food, clothing and housing. A parent with sole custody receives set payments. Custodial parents or those awarded joint custody pay an amount based on a ratio between each parents income and parenting time. Final numbers related to income, expenses and parenting time are determined by state-mandated guidelines.
