The California Child Support Arrears Calculator
Watch how adding an extra $25 to $50 to your usual monthly payment can decrease your balance faster!
The Arrears Estimator is a valuable tool that will allow you to compare how the length of time and total interest paid are affected by differing monthly payment amounts. Just watch how adding an extra $25 to $50 to your usual monthly payment can significantly decrease the total amount you pay in interest, as well as decreasing the amount of time you are making payments on the past due child support owed. You also have the option of entering the number of months in which you would like to have your balances paid off. By entering the number of months, the estimator will determine what the monthly payment needs to be to make this happen.
* This calculation represents an estimate for paying off past due child support in California. It should not be used for any other purpose. This is only an ESTIMATE!
