What Are The Child Support Guidelines in California?

The child support guideline gives parents a better understanding of how child support is calculated. However, just as the circumstances of each case are different, so are the amounts of child support ordered by the court. For specific information about the child support guidelines and formula, see the Statewide Uniform Guidelines for Determining Child Support listed in the California Family Code (Sections 4050­4076).
