California Child Support Modification - California Child Support Information on Child Support Modifications

Are you looking for California child support information related to child support modifications? Due to changes over time in parents work status, income and time children live with each parent, child support modification cases are common in the California courts.

How are California Child Support Modifications Determined?
California uses a guideline child support formula for calculating child support modifications. This guideline calculation is statewide and can be found in Family Code Section § 4050-4076. While the child support formula found in Family Code § 4050 is complex, the main factors in calculating the amount of child support in a child support modification petition are (1) the parents income, (2) the percentage of time the child lives with each parent and (3) tax deductions available to each parent.

Do Judges follow any Rules in a California Child Support Modification Hearing?
California child support guidelines ensure a minimum level of financial support for a child and provide for some level of consistency when it comes to child support modifications. There is a presumption that the child support guideline calculation is correct in every child support case, including a child support modification (Family Code 4053(k)). California judges must follow the provisional rules in calculating child support and only deviate from it in very specific circumstances and limited situations (Family Code § 4052).
