Child Support

As experts in the realm of child support, we understand the complexities of California law.  The determination of child support can be highly technical.  It also can require solid preparation and accounting work.

This is particularly true when one or both parents have an extraordinarily high income.  In cases such as these, it is important to be able to demonstrate exactly how much income or cash flow is available for child support.  Equally important is the ability to demonstrate the reasonable needs of the children, consistent with their parents’ station in life.  These issues often are hard-fought, and the legal team at The Reis Law Firm knows how to handle them.

The Reis Law Firm is experienced at obtaining court awards and structuring child support settlements based upon parents’ income, the number of children, time spent with each parent, lifestyle and educational goals.  Similarly, if needed, we will also work with estate planning professionals to craft separate trusts or funds aiding in the protection of the future of your children.

Over time, circumstances may change.  Income may go up or down.  The amount of time spent with each parent may be different.  The children’s needs may increase.  When there is a substantial change in circumstances, a modification of child support may be warranted.  We are well equipped to represent you, whether you are seeking or resisting a modification of child support.
