Child Support (Family Code sections 3900 et seq)

The father and mother of a minor child have an equal responsibility to support their child in a manner suitable to the child’s circumstances.

The duty of support imposed by the Court continues as to an unmarried child who has attained the age of 18 years, is a full-time high school student, and who is not self-supporting, until the time the child completes the 12th grade or attains the age of 19 years, whichever occurs first.

Child support is calculated pursuant to a formula adopted by the legislature.  The calculation is deemed a “guideline” calculation and must be ordered by the court except in certain limited circumstances.
