Child support in California is based on a statewide guideline that takes into consideration, among other things, the income of both parents (or the income a parent could earn), the number of children at issue, and the amount of time the children spend with each parent. Sometimes, depending upon the sort of employment a party has (or does not have but arguably should have), the calculation of a parent’s income can be complicated.
