Ensuring Support Through Life Events
Support payments are a contentious but important issue in both custody decisions and divorce settlements. Support payments influence your quality of life by helping with daily expenses, and they allow for longer-term opportunities: schooling for children as well as occupational training or higher education for divorcees to seek a new career.
What Do Child Support And Spousal Support Cover?
Child support agreements will affect how your child is raised in the short and long term. As a parent, you are expected to help with your child’s upbringing, including financially. At Erlandson Family Law in San Mateo, we’ll work with you to make sure that your kids have a bright future ahead of them.
Spousal support (sometimes referred to as alimony) is a safety net to protect you through the transition of divorce. Divorce often reduces household income, and spousal support helps offset the change.
