Child Support & Spousal Support Attorney in San Jose

Even after a marriage or relationship ends, family obligations often continue. Child and Spousal Support are very important issues that often have to be address in a family law case.

Child Support

California uses a formula to determine child support based on the income of the parents and the amount of time each parent spends with the child(ren). The State of California has set “guideline” amounts for child support based on these, and other inputs into the formula. I can help you determine the correct amount of support to be paid in a given case, taking into account all of the necessary factors.

Spousal Support

As part of a divorce action, the court may order one spouse to pay the other spousal support if it is appropriate. Spousal support is designed to allow the payee spouse to maintain the marital standard of living until he or she can become self-supporting. The court’s decision to award spousal support depends on numerous factors found in California law. I can help examine each of these factors, and work to determine how to proceed with the issue of spousal support in your case.
