Child support in California is calculated using an algebraic formula, since 1992.
The formula that is used is:
CS= K [HN- (H%) (TN)]
CS= child support awarded
K= factor of both parents' income. This varies depending on number of
HN= high earner's net disposable income
H%= high earner's approximate percentage of time spent with children
TN = both parents' combined total net disposable income.
"Deductions include, state and federal income taxes, FICA
contributions, union dues, retirement benefits, disability and health
insurance premiums, and job related expenses. Child or spousal support
actually paid under a court order to someone who is not a subject of
the award being calculated may be deducted. In absence of a court
order, child support paid in guideline amount for children not
residing with the parent and are not the subject of the award being
calculated may also be deducted. A "hardship," as defined by the
Family Code, is not deducted from child support but is deducted from
the income of the party with the hardship."
The amount of child support awarded with this formula is presumed to
be correct. However, it can be negated by the parents determining a
different amount, one parent making an exceedingly high income that
would reward a much higher support than is needed by the children,
special medical needs of the children, the child support payer having
a very low income level, or one parent having a much higher housing
cost than the other.
After calculating you and your husband's monthly net income, you
should be able to plug the numbers into the formula and get the proper
california child support
