Modesto Child Support Guidelines Attorney
Turlock Family Law Lawyer
Child support is often as contentious as child custody. How much is paid and how much is received are issues that can slow down the divorce process significantly and add to the anxiety of parents, whatever side of the equation they are on.
The Support Calculator
The state of California has developed child support guidelines that are based on the incomes of both parents and other considerations. The goal of these guidelines is to simplify the calculation of child support. In some cases, it works well. However, in other instances, the routine application of the child support guidelines leaves one party financially challenged or the other party unable to support the children because of inadequate child support.

Making Sure Parents Report Their Income and Assets Accurately
Using the child support calculator requires accuracy in reporting income and assets. One of the biggest problems is determining the actual income and sources of funds. Obtaining the correct facts often requires a subpoena to determine true income. Spouses often try to hide part of their earnings by making expensive purchases or placing some of their earnings in accounts they hope can be hidden. His background as a CPA allows Mr. Hogan to deal with issues such as these effectively.
Filing for Modifications of Support Orders
His goal is a realistic allocation of resources that will allow the child to receive proper support while protecting his client’s best interests. He has been successful over the years in accomplishing this on behalf of parents, using his training as a CPA and his many years of experience handling child support matters. He has also been successful in securing modifications of support orders when circumstances, such as a job loss, illness or remarriage, change the calculations.
