The amount of child support depends mostly on

  • each parent’s income,
  • whether either parent is paying for child care or health insurance, and
  • how much time the child spends with each parent.

In California, courts usually follow a formula (called a guideline) to decide how much child support will be paid. You can use this online Child Support Calculator to see what the support may be in your case: www.childsup.ca.gov.
