Child support is the amount of money that the Court orders one parent to pay the other parent every month for the support of the child(ren). California has a formula (called a "guideline") for figuring out how much child support should be paid in all cases. Click here to learn more about how child support is calculated.
Child support payments are usually made until children turn 18, or 19, if they are still in high school full- time, living at home, and cannot support themselves. Parents may agree to support a child longer. The Court may also order that both parents continue to support a disabled adult child that is not self-supporting.
