Waiving Child Support Vs. Zero Child Support Order : California Divorce

Hi, Tim Blankenship here with divorce661.com and today we’re talking about the difference of no child support versus waiving child support.

So, a lot of times we have clients who have kids and they want to waive child support or they’ll say Tim, we’re getting a divorce and we’ve agreed to waive child support. So, in California, you cannot waive child support.

It is mandatory in the state of California, however there is a way to get your divorce done and not have child support. So, what am I talking about? Again, there’s a difference between waiving child support and having a zero child support order. While child support may be mandatory, it’s possible to get a zero support order.

You still have to have a child support order as part of your judgment, but we can set it at zero based upon your agreement. If you have any questions about this, give me a call because it’s very specific. You can’t turn in a divorce judgment and say we’re waiving child support. There’s a specific way you have to package up your judgment to set child support at zero.
