Calculate and estimate California child support by entering all of the requested information below. The results will help inform your position for mediation or negotiation with your spouse. We recommend, however, that if you end up needing to go to court and litigate your divorce, you have a formal calculation prepared.
Hello Divorce’s child support calculator is for estimation purposes only. It has not been approved by the State of California and is not admissible in court. Using our calculator can give you a general idea of what child support may look like in your case. Don’t rely solely on this calculator for negotiating, mediating, or litigating the amount of support you’ll end up paying or receiving. The use of this calculation alone does not constitute legal advice or an attorney-client relationship.
While our calculator does follow the general mathematical formula used in the California Family Code and the Rules of Court, it does not consider all tax scenarios or all possible tax deductions. The calculations we provide are not guaranteed and cannot be certified as accurate.
