Santa Clara County Child Support Attorneys
Non Custodial Parental Rights Lawyers in San Jose
Children deserve the emotional and financial support of both parents even if the parents are no longer married to each other or if they were never married. At Manassau Law Offices, P.C. in San Jose, California, our attorney Elizabeth Manassau helps clients establish, enforce, and modify court ordered child support. To arrange a consultation about your child support issue, please do not hesitate to contact us at 408-918-0010.
In California, child support is established by a formula set by statute. It is a deceptively simple system. We input information about each parent's income, the percent of time spent with the children, and the number of children, and a computer program called a Dissomaster or Support Tax program will calculate the amount of child support the non-custodial parent must pay.
Ms. Manassau can protect your rights by making sure all relevant income information is included in the calculation. We will scrutinize the accuracy of the income information provided by other party. We have a comprehensive understanding of the law and of the circumstances under which we may request a deviation from the recommended support payment. For example, if your child has special medial or emotional needs, the costs associated with treatment can significantly alter support payments.
If you have experienced a significant change in circumstances such as a big pay increase or decrease, please contact us as soon as possible and we will petition the court for a modification in your child support payment so that it more accurately reflects your current ability to pay.
Ms. Manassau also helps clients in the enforcement of child support orders and in the non-custodial parent's have rights to child custody and visitation. For a consultation, please contact us today at 408-918-0010.
