Child support calculations are based on income

Like many other states, California uses the income shares model to calculate child support orders. If two divorced or separated parents cannot reach a child support agreement outside of court, a judge will calculate monthly child support payments using both parents' incomes, the number of children and the children's anticipated expenses.

College funds and the divorce process

If a divorcing couple in California has children, college savings accounts may be a topic of discussion during property division negotiations. Although parents usually open these accounts with the same goals in mind, a divorce might make one spouse start to wonder how the other spouse will handle the college fund. To protect a child's college fund after a divorce, it is important that college savings accounts are addressed in the separation agreement.
