Murrieta Child Support Lawyer
Making Child Support Payments in CA
Child support is a payment made by the non-custodial parent to the custodial
parent to provide for their child's food, shelter, clothing, and other
important day-to-day necessities. Child support payments must be made
on a consistent basis until the child reaches the legal age of 18. Even

and the protection of his or her well-being.
