Unfortunately, mistakes are made or the courts fail to decide child support cases as they should. Sometimes, the child support decided by the court is either too little for the care-giving parent or too much for the payer-parent to handle. Is such instances, changes are needed requiring the help of a skilled attorney who can make all the difference.

At the Orange County Law Office of Edwin Fahlen, our goal is to help you reach a balance in your financial expectations in either paying or receiving child support. We will help you through a detailed analysis and then helping you get the changes your need.

Skilled Lawyer Can Make a Real Difference

According to California statute and the manner the courts calculate support payments, no one should be paying more or receiving more than he or she reasonably can. We start from that premise while keeping our client’s needs and rights front and center. In some cases where there are more assets such as a family home, investment properties, investment and retirement accounts, good income streams, and meaningful tax considerations for each spouse, we are able to come up with creative opportunities that most divorcing spouses would never be presented for consideration because many family law attorneys just do not have the experience or knowledge to uncover.
