Child Support

Southern California Child Support Attorneys

In almost all cases in the state of California, child support is determined by a mandatory Guideline formula that takes into account, among other things, the gross income of both parents as well as the amount of parenting time each has with the child.

Although in limited circumstances a court may deviate from the Guideline formula, anyone who is involved in a divorce, paternity proceeding or post-Judgment modification proceeding involving a child support dispute should retain an experienced family law attorney who is knowledgeable about the California child support Guideline, the allowable deductions, and the circumstances in which it may be inapplicable. 

At the law firm of Macksoud & Macksoud, we have helped many clients in Los Angeles County, Orange County and throughout Southern California protect their rights in contested child support proceedings. If you are involved in a divorce or need help with a paternity or child support modification proceeding, we encourage you to contact our law office in Torrance, California. For assistance, call 310-961-2989 or contact us by e-mail.

Complex Child Support Issues

While on its face the California child support Guideline formula may seem straightforward, many scenarios present complex issues that require the attention of an experienced and knowledgable family law attorney.  Such complex issues include an unemployed or underemployed parent, a parent who has self-employment and/or unearned income.

With more than 40 years of combined family law experience, our attorneys have significant expertise with these and other complex child support issues.
