California Support

In the context of a divorce, California support can be looked two ways.

1. Alimony or as it is sometimes called, Spousal Maintenance

2. Child support

When referring to spousal maintenance or alimony, California support can be either temporary or lasting.

It can also be paid in a onetime lump sum, division of assets, or in monthly installments.

Either way, there are several ways to diminish your California support responsibility.

In order to use the scheme to your benefit, first you must realize how the system works.

In the California of Florida, alimony is either agreed to by you and your ex or an amount is set at the preference of the county judge in Family court, when the parties can’t agree on an amount.

Disposable income is a main factor in alimony and it’s defined as total income minus taxes and essential living expenses.

The income left once taxes and living expenses get paid is called your "disposable income".

This variance between yours and her disposable income establishes whether or you pay alimony and the amount.

Basically the larger the disposable income gap, the more you’ll pay. You want to do everything possible to reduce or even eliminate this gap.

To do this we want to make you aware there are right and wrong ways, so it’s essential you grasp how things work and exploit a proven strategy assured to get you the results you want.

California Support when referring to child support is a different matter. Unlike alimony, Child support is not up to the discretion of a judge, but calculated using guideline formulas.

Very little is subject to analysis, so disposable income is not a factor in the decision.

Child support is determined through guideline formulas based your income, her income, the number of children you have, and the amount of time you spend with your kids each month.

Your expenses, her expenses, and the children's primary expenses are not factors when calculating Child Support in Florida.

Please note that additional expenses like day care and medical expenses are typically added to the guideline support amount.

So for example, if your child needs medical treatment not covered by medical insurance, like braces, this medical expense will be in addition to your regular monthly support payments.

Chances are good you’ll be on the hook for roughly half of any “additional” expenses.

If parents agree to a child support amount without going to court, the judge will generally accept this agreed to child support amount.

Many times parents reach arrangements with no court participation. If, on the other hand, you and your ex don’t agree on child support, a judge will determine your child support payment using the California child support guidelines.

In order to eliminate your California Support anxiety around alimony or child support, you need strategies that will get the results you want.

In order to minimize the support you’ll have to pay your ex you should do everything possible and use proven tactics to accomplish that goal.
