Child Support Calculator
The courts have official programs that they use to determine
support, and these approved programs are the only support
calculations admissible in court.
Please note that the use of this calculator does not
constitute legal advice and is just for estimation purposes.
You should consult an attorney to obtain accurate legal
advice regarding your specific child support. The courts
have official programs that they use to determine support,
and these approved programs are the only support calculations
admissible in court. This calculator uses the mathematical
formula found in the California Family Code and is current
through the 2000 legislative session, and the results
of this program have been tested and found to closely
approximate those as determined by the officially approved
programs. However, our calculator does not automatically
factor in the tax consequences regarding your income.
(It does not make deductions from gross income to arrive
at net income.) Under the Statewide Uniform Guideline
for Child Support, net income is determined by deducting
certain standard deductions, i.e., taxes, social security,
state disability, mandatory retirement and health insurance.
The court also has the discretion to allow specified "hardship
deductions," such as uninsured medical bills, uninsured
catastrophic losses or the support of children from other
relationships. We do not guarantee that our results will
be the same as other programs, nor accept any liability
from your use of the program. This information is not
guaranteed and no warranty as to its reliability is made,
