Every child has a right to emotional and financial support from both parents. Under California law, anyone who becomes a parent automatically assumes the financial responsibility of providing for his/her child. Single mothers and fathers continually struggle with the serious and complicated challenge of raising their children. In many cases custodial and noncustodial parents work together to support their children emotionally and financially; however, some do not.
