Your Guide Through Challenging Times

Provide For Your Child Without Putting Your Financial Well-Being In Jeopardy

Every parent wants to sleep safe in the knowledge that they have met their child’s needs. But the cost of raising a child alone in California can be exorbitant, particularly as you transition to living as a single parent. At Klausner | Johnson LLP, we understand California child support guidelines, and we use our more than 50 years of combined experience to ensure your support order protects your financial future.

Understanding The Basics Of Child Support In California

California family law courts have a clear priority – do what is best for the child. But parents often wonder: will my child have to make sacrifices? Will my support order create unnecessary financial stress?

When you come into our office, we provide an overview of Orange County’s family courts and what to expect. After a full examination of your finances, including your income, investments, assets and any relevant divorce settlements, our team creates a plan to optimize your payment. While the court will calculate your child support, we ensure that calculation is correct and that you have enough money to meet your basic needs regardless of if you are a payee or a recipient.

What Happens If A Check Does Not Come On Time?

Child support enforcement is often emotionally fraught. Not only are your finances involved, but payments often bring up strong emotions about your co-parent. If you are struggling with delinquent or missing payments from a supporting parent, we can help resolve the issue with grace.
