Child Support Attorney in San Jose - Santa Clara County - California

Regardless of your behavior or that of your spouse, California law views the children as no fault victims in a divorce case and due state mandated protection. The obligation to pay child support is a continuous duty that exists regardless of one's marital status. The aim of the courts is to try and provide for the children the same standard of living as that of the supporting divorced parent. At the Law Offices of Ivy Chien, P.C., we assist our clients with court procedures to help ensure the protection and financial interests of the children.

Child support in California is largely based on a formula taking into account the income of the non-custodial parent and physical time share.

Support of the children from both parents is ideal. However, when a custodial parent is receiving public assistance for a child or children (from the Department of Child Support Services in Santa Clara County or the Department of Child Support Services in the state county where the child lives, for example) these government agencies may become an active participant in the collection of child support payments from the non-custodial parent.

We have represented parents in all phases of Divorce, Child Custody, and child support proceedings. We represent clients who have been contacted by the The Department of Child Support Services pertaining to late payments (or, arrearages). The Law Offices of Ivy Chien, P.C. has also represented and litigated on the behalf parents to collect support from former "deadbeat" spouses who make no effort to contribute financially to their children's welfare or safety. The law firm has a track record of success when it comes to having the court impute former spouse income. This can be done if your former spouse refuses to submit to a vocational evaluation, refuses to work, refuses to cooperate when having their business or businesses appraised, or when your former spouse claims they are "not making money."
