Barbara McNamara is a child support lawyer serving Orange County

Following a divorce and determination of child custody, the next issue that is usually discussed is child support. Child support can be a very sensitive issue for both parties. The custodial spouse is usually concerned about having enough money to provide for his or her children, while the non-custodial and support paying spouse is concerned that they will be required to pay too much and have difficulty meeting other financial obligations.

As a certified family law specialist, I can help you resolve child support issues with fewer headaches, stress and hassle than trying to handle them on your own. The guidelines that the State of California imposes on determining how much child support can be awarded are very specific, and the can be difficult to understand.

Factors that go into calculating child support include but are not limited to:

  • Both parents’ net monthly income
  • The non-custodial parent’s net monthly income
  • Financial obligations of both parents


I will walk you through the child support process step by step, so you can be aware of your legal rights and options from start to finish. When you need someone who can support you and your family through the challenges created by a separation or a divorce, you can count on me to answer your questions and let you know where you stand.

You don’t have to let child support issues cause a deep rift in your family, or make dealing with co-parenting your children with your ex-spouse unbearable. I can help you find solutions that will work for you and your loved ones, so you can move on from your separation or divorce and begin building a new life.

My name is Cheryl Stack and I work for Chapman University in Orange, California. I have been employed with Chapman for twenty three years.

I was the victim of a harassment/stalking situation for over one year and was seeking legal assistance to get the female perpetrator to stop. At the time of my first meeting with Barbara, I had filed two police reports with the City of Orange Police department. I had also met with another attorney prior to meeting Barbara. After our first initial......
Barbara McNamara was recommended to me by a co-worker who had seen her in action while waiting for his case to be heard. My friend did not have representation at the time and was fine with that–until he saw Barbara. He said she was a TIGER in the courtroom! I took his advice and retained Barbara as my attorney. Barbara had her game face on when I met her and it was awesome! She had an intensity when listening to me talk, I knew she was totally engaged with what I had to say. Barbara laid it on the line and gave her candid opinion, which I appreciated and still appreciate. We.....
