Child Support Archives

Parents who owe child support may hide income from gig work

An increasing percentage of San Jose residents and other Californians are working within the gig economy, which involves completing work via online platforms. This economy presents a problem when the gig workers owe child support because locating their income sources may be difficult.

Signing a child support stipulation

Many California residents with children need to request court-ordered child support from the other parent in order to make ends meet. Individuals who have been asked to pay child support may wonder if there is a way to avoid going to court. It may be possible to avoid having to appear before a judge in court by signing a stipulation agreement.

Garnishing wages and child support

Some people in San Jose may be among the many workers whose wages are being garnished for child support, student loans or consumer debt. According to a study released on Sept. 27 by the ADP Research Institute, 7 percent of people throughout the country have their wages garnished. Usually, garnishments happen as the result of a court order.

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna reach support agreement

California residents often hear news of celebrity child support disputes, which can become very complex. The dispute over child support between Rob Kardashian and Black Chyna also fits the pattern and after almost a year of conflict, the exes have agreed to terms.

For answers in child support cases, DNA tests can help

For people involved in a dispute over child support in San Jose, DNA paternity testing can help play a major role in answering outstanding questions and leading to a settlement. Child support and adequate financial assistance is important for a growing child. When children have the financial support of both parents, they are better equipped to deal with school, medical or other responsibilities and obligations.

Getting modifications for child support orders

California parents may sometimes find it necessary to request a modification to an existing child support order. This can be due to certain life events, like being terminated from a job. In order to receive more child support or pay less child support as their situation indicates, both parents must be in agreement for any changes to the existing order, or the family court judge must issue a modification to the order.

How to resolve child support matters amicably

California couples whose marriages are ending and who have minor children often come to a child support agreement on their own. They may also come to an agreement by using alternate dispute resolution methods. If neither of those options are effective, a court may determine how much financial support a parent must provide to a child. However, when parents are able to come to an agreement on their own, it may still need to be approved by a judge.

Options for reaching an agreement about child support

When San Jose parents of young children get a divorce, one will likely be obligated to pay child support to the other. However, this decision is not necessarily one that is made by a judge. Parents might enter informal negotiations with the help of their attorneys to reach an agreement about child support. In some cases, parents might actively participate in this negotiation while in other cases their attorneys might take the lead.

How to find a noncustodial parent

Before a California parent can ask for child support from the other parent, the state must be able to identify who the noncustodial parent is. For this, the state has a parent locator service that helps child support agencies locate the noncustodial parent. While it is usually easiest to locate the noncustodial parent through their current address, the child support agency may have to use other means if the parent does not know the address.
