To ensure that children do not fall into poverty because of divorce or out-of-wedlock birth, California has adopted child support guidelines and an effective mechanism for payment. However, the state gives family court judges latitude in deciding the final amount.

Springer has more than 30 years of combined experience representing parents on both sides of the equation. We know what is necessary to secure the most beneficial outcome for our clients.

The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer starts with a complete inventory of your finances and uses the rules of discovery to compel full disclosure from the opposing party. Our thorough approach can make all the difference in securing a fair and complete child support order.
