Hello Victor,I'm not quite sure about the issue of a twin? Are you asking how much support would be paid for two children (twins)? If you could explain a bit further it would be great.Thanks!Ben, J.D.
Hello again Victor,
My name is XXX. X'm a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.
Sure sorry for your circumstances, truly. My heart goes out to you.
Accordingly, I'm pleased to share some good news with you. What you're being told really doesn't make sense or follow the law. Child support is based on some very complex calculations taking into account a multitude of factors. In other words, the law does not say for "X" number of children you'll automatically pay "Y" percentage of your net disposable income or anything along those lines.
Here's what you can do, however, and it's free of charge. Plug your data and information into the following tool to get the best idea of what you're looking at:
California Guideline Child Support Calculator
Walk through each step, enter your numbers, and you'll get the most reliable estimate of where things really stand.
If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.I hope all works out for you.
Happy New Year!
