Child support is one of the most contentious issues that California family courts deal with. Thousands of parents each year struggle to enforce child support orders or initiate the modification process. Though the best interests of their children are often foremost in their minds, many people find it difficult to get the support they need.
You may be a parent seeking child support after your divorce or from the unmarried parent of your child. A major change in your professional life may have occurred, leaving you unemployed or earning less money and struggling to make ends meet with your current child support obligations. You may have learned that your child's other parent recently got a better-paying job that would warrant a change in your child support order.
