This webinar will explore the ways in which a court will determine income available for the payment of both child and spousal support.  We will walk you through the salient factors of determining the payor’s true income, including review of tax returns, profit and loss statements, W2s, loan applications, and each party’s monthly expenses.  What you see is not always reality when reviewing the payor’s (or the payee’s for that matter) reported income.

We will delve into child support with a keen eye on how the court arrives at a guideline child support calculation.  We will discuss the ramifications of agreeing to a non-guideline child support order.  And we will discuss seek work orders, extraordinary work regimens, and special considerations for handling child support when a child has special needs or a disability—including adult-aged children who cannot support themselves.

Finally, we will end with spousal support and the difference between spousal support ordered before a judgment of dissolution of marriage is granted and spousal support that is ordered post-judgment.  We will explain what the Family Code 4320 factors entail and how to present your case for trial with the factors in mind.
