San Diego Alimony & Child Support Lawyers

Helping to Navigate Child & Spousal Support Agreements in California

In California, child support amounts are determined by a set of particularly complicated and nuanced guidelines. The guidelines consider the incomes of both parents, as well as the time each parent spends with the children. However, people often have options within these guidelines. As family law specialists, it is our role to help people know and understand all of their options.

Law & Mediation Firm of Klueck & Hoppes, APC has handled both issues of child support and spousal support since 1990. We understand that, while many view the law as making child support a cut-and-dry matter, there are still many points that may be disputed. Divorcing couples often disagree about what income should be included in child support calculations — income like overtime and bonuses. Reaching an agreement may require a judge's ruling.

We're here to help make sure you receive a ruling that accurately represents your situation. Call (619) 577-4900 today to schedule a free consultation. Let us empower you with multiple options.

Child Support Attorney in San Diego

Usually, a change in income gives rise to the need for change in child support. This change, however, does not happen automatically. If a parent loses his or her job or receives a substantial change in income, a motion must be filed.

It is wise for parents to do this as soon as possible - before child support payments become overdue. They can begin by calling Law & Mediation Firm of Klueck & Hoppes, APC at (619) 577-4900. We can help you navigate this situation as quickly and effectively as possible.

San Diego Alimony Lawyers

Spousal support (sometimes called alimony) is awarded in certain situations, usually when one spouse has supported the other throughout the marriage. When deciding if alimony should be awarded in a divorce, courts consider as many as 10 factors that affect the decision, including the ones listed below:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Age and health of the parties
  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • Whether the party was out of the workforce for any domestic reason
