Child support is often one of the most difficult family law concerns to resolve. Fortunately, our family lawyers at Nelson Kirkman have more than five decades collectively of handling amicable and high-conflict child support cases alike. Serving the Orange County metro area, we are prepared to facilitate collaborative child support negotiations or advocate for you tenaciously in a California family court.

What Is Child Support?

Child support refers to the legal obligation of one parent to pay the other parent financial support to provide for the needs of their child. Parents have the option of negotiating an agreement regarding child support payments without going to court. If parents disagree on child support, they may have to go to trial in which a judge issues a final decision.

Can Spousal Support Payments Affect The Amount Of Child Support?

When issuing a child support order, the court primarily considers each parent’s income and each parent’s time spent with the child according to the custody and parenting time order. If one parent also requires spousal support, the amount of spousal support will usually decrease as the amount of child support increases.
