Child support is an amount of money that the Court orders one parent to pay the other parent each month for the support of the child/children. In California, child support is based on a “guideline”. The guideline is a formula based on the incomes of the parties and the time each parent spends with the children.
Child support is payable until a child marries, dies, is emancipated, reaches 19, or reaches 18 and is not a full-time high school student, whichever first occurs.
If a party is not employed or earning income, the Court can make an Order of Child Support based upon the payor’s ability or capacity to earn income. A party’s capacity to earn must be based upon the ability of the parent to perform a particular type of job and the availability of those types of jobs.

You may ask, “What if I am having problems collecting child support?” The Court will order a wage assignment that can be served on the employer, and the employer will send the support directly to the recipient parent. The Court can also enforce a child support order, including revocation of the party’s driver’s license or work-related licenses.
