Sherman Oaks Child Support Lawyer
California Support, Family Law, and Divorce Attorney
Attorney Barbara Irshay Zipperman helps clients in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, and throughout the San Fernando Valley determine child support arrangements as part of their divorce.
Strict Formulas Do Not Prevent Disputes in Child Support
Child support calculations are based on the income of both parents and any special needs of the children. Those numbers are entered into a statutory formula. This formula will then provide the amount of child support that is to be paid. While, the calculations and the formula are not subject to change, sometime the amounts entered into the calculation are disputed. That is where experienced attorney Barbara Irshay Zipperman can help.
The Need to Determine Accurate Income in Child Support Matters
A parent's income is often disputed, particularly when one parent does not have a straightforward salary or hourly wage. The income must be determined, requiring more in-depth investigations and the use of accounting experts. The final calculation is only as accurate as the information entered into it. When one parent is attempting to hide income, it may be necessary to resolve disputes by courtroom litigation.
