California Child Support Calculator
California law requires courts to adhere to statewide uniform guidelines in setting child support orders. The Payment Estimator applies the statewide uniform guideline calculation to the information that you enter into the blank fields. Click on Instructions for information to help you enter information into the blank fields.
Some understanding of California family law and California and federal tax law is necessary to complete some blank fields correctly. You can obtain assistance in completing the Payment Estimator from your county’s Family Law Facilitator or a family law attorney.
