There is also a free child support calculator available online through the California Department of Child Support Services. https://childsupport.ca.gov/guideline-calculator/ Dissomaster can also be used to calculate spousal support. Courts generally have more discretion in setting a spousal support taking into consideration numerous statutory factors under Cal. Family code section 4230. Parties can request and courts can make temporary orders on child and spousal support pending a final determination.
