Knowledgeable And Creative Child Support Attorneys

Gary, Till & Burlingham believes the financial burden of raising children should be apportioned between the parents as the law requires. In California, all child support orders are calculated via a mandatory statewide formula that is calculated by a handful of special computer programs. However, the input and calculation settings are crucial to determining the amount of support ordered in your case.

The lawyers at Gary, Till & Burlingham are well-versed at calculating appropriate support orders for our clients. We also have years of experience protecting support payers from incorrect computer calculations and underemployed support recipients. Additionally, should you need to modify the existing support order in your current case, we will be able to help you determine the options that are available to you.
