California law provides for an orderly means of determining the child support level. The amount of support is set by a statutory formula. The level depends on factors such as the incomes of the parents and the child's residency time with each parent, adjusted for expenses such as health care, child care and education costs.
The Law Offices of David M. Lederman places a high priority on obtaining the right child support level for our clients. We will work to obtain the child support payment that is correct, according to the facts and the law.
Our firm represents clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area in matters involving:
- Determination of the child support level
- Modifications in child support
- Enforcement of child support orders
- Paternity as it relates to child support

The Inputs Are Key to Child Support Calculation
The actual calculation of the child support level is a mathematical exercise. However, the outcome of the calculation depends on the numbers going in. Cases involving parents with hidden income, self-employed parents or those whose incomes vary widely from year to year present special problems.
Our family law firm is experienced in analyzing the validity of income figures and expenses. When necessary, we can call upon forensic accountants and financial analysts who can support your child support case. We can also use the expertise of these professionals to challenge the assertions of the opposing party.
Modifications in Child Support
At the Law Offices of David M. Lederman, we believe that a parent receiving child support should receive all of the support the law mandates. We also believe that a payer of child support should not have to pay more than the law requires.
We will work to obtain the right level of support during the divorce process. When a significant change in circumstances occurs, such as an increase or decrease in salary, or change in custody arrangements or parenting plans, we can go to court to obtain a modification for you.
