Experienced Roseville Lawyers

In Placer County Each parent is legally obligated to support their children financially, even if they are divorced from the other parent or were never married. A court can require that one or both parents pay child support to the other parent. Typically, the non-custodial parent pays monthly child support to the custodial parent, and a judge will calculate the amount based on the state’s child support guidelines. Because child support belongs to the child—and not the parents—you cannot waive child support during a divorce. Child support typically lasts until a child is 18 and has graduated high school.
