In California, one’s request for child support is primarily based each parties’ gross monthly income and respective timeshares of the child, among other factors. In this case, Corey Feldman’s ex-wife is requesting that he pay $307 per month in child support. Why so little? It turns out that Corey is only earning $1387 per month in income. No information was available regarding the timeshare that Corey has with the child.
Additionally, the former Mrs. Feldman is also asking that Corey provide medical insurance of the child and that he pay for 1/2 of unreimbursed medical expenses.
From an Orange County divorce lawyer’s perspective, the determination of child support is based upon the gross monthly income of each parent, timeshare and any additional monthly deductions (i.e. mortgage interest deduction, property tax deduction, etc.) and other factors, which his determined on a case by case basis.
If you have a child support obligation, pay it, unless you need to modify it for some reason. Remember that your failure to pay child support could result in severe consequences, including the Department of Child Support Service’s authority to take away your driver’s license or place a hold on your US Passport.
At any rate, contact an Orange County divorce lawyer if you have any Los Angeles County or Orange County child support issues.
