The main purpose of child support is to pay for a child’s daily expenses – food, living expenses, and clothing are a few examples. It’s paid monthly to a custodial parent, and typically the amount will be determined by the court. Even if both parties are in agreement with the amount of child support that will be paid, it’s imperative that they seek the court’s approval. In the absence of a court order, child support can be incredibly difficult to enforce.
Judges in California understand the importance of preserving the relationship a child has with their parents. It may not always be possible, depending on the family’s situation, to both be part of the child’s life at all times. Parents may often disagree about how they would like their child to be raised, leading to the need to bring the case to court.
As a general rule of thumb, all judges render custody decisions based on “the child’s best interests.” In other words, whatever the judge believes will benefit the child most in the long-run. This decision will be made upon review of all of the evidence.
