In California, both mother and father have an obligation to support their children. Typically, the court will order the parent with less custody to pay child support to the parent with majority custody. In California, judges follow uniform guideline support standard, unless you agreed otherwise with the other parent of your child. The two major factors that affect the amount of child support are: the income of both parents and the amount of time each parent spends with the children.
