Child Support: Worker's Comp Settlement

Santa Rosa, CA |

Are workers comp settlements included when determining child support?

Attorney Answers 2


  1. In New York, if you are receiving indemnity for lost wages, it would be considered and can be garnished. Please confer with a California attorney to determine the applicability in CA. Good luck.


  2. Worker's comp settlements are usually two components; one is lost wages and the second is compensation for the injury itself. The lost wages part is often considered when calculating child support.
