I am Earl L. Jiang, a child support attorney in Fremont who represents clients throughout the Bay Area. If you are seeking child support payments, or if you wish to modify your current child support order, contact my law office.

Determining Child Support in California

In California, child support is determined by a formula that considers a number of factors: each parent’s disposable income, earning capacity of both parents, time spent with children and other considerations. The final determination for child support is presumed to be correct unless it can be shown that the court’s determination was based on inaccurate information.

If you are seeking child support payments, I can guide you through the legal process and carefully prepare your case. Additionally, I am happy to answer your questions and address your concerns along the way.

Does paternity need to be established before you seek child support payments? Contact my firm for more information.

Child Support Modifications

There are a variety of reasons why a child support modification may become necessary. In order for the court to approve a modification, it must be shown that one parent has experienced a change in circumstances, such as the following:

  • Change in finances — up or down — from job loss, promotion, etc.
  • Change in child custody or time share

If you are the child support-paying parent and a modification has been requested, we can help you determine if the change in circumstances is great enough to warrant a modification.
