Advocating For Full And Fair Support

When parents decide to divorce, the breakup of their marriage can have devastating effects on their children. Requiring parents pay child support after divorce is one way California courts aim to limit the impact marriage dissolution has on children. Children of divorce are entitled to financial support; these monthly payments are not optional.

In Redding, Tamera C. Trindade, CFLS* Attorney and Counselor at Law helps parents determine fair child support obligations and secure an agreement that addresses their children's financial needs. Founding lawyer Tamera Trindade is well-versed in the factors that determine child support payments. You can be certain that she will advocate for a just amount that reflects your financial circumstances.

Establishing Fair Guideline Child Support

Child support payments are calculated using a range of factors that include:

  • Number of children supported
  • Time each parent spends with children
  • Income earned
  • Filing status

When you work with our team, we will examine financial records, bills and other documents to determine the expenses that should be covered by support payments. These required expenses include:

  • Medical and dental health care
  • Basic living expenses
  • Unpaid child support

Other expenses can include:

  • Child care or tuition
  • Fees for extracurricular activities

Our legal team is dedicated to promoting the welfare of children throughout Shasta County. For this reason, we will use the law to obtain a full and fair support order in and out of area courthouses.

A practiced litigator, Ms. Trindade has a record of court success with support disputes during and after divorce proceedings. She regularly represents clients in post-judgment actions to modify and enforce child support orders.
