Y.R. v. A.F.

In a Mother's appeal of the trial court's order awarding child support from Father in an amount that deviated downward from the statewide uniform guideline by a substantial amount, under Family Code section 4056(a), the order is reversed where: 1) t the trial court's failure to comply with the requirements of section 4056(a) mandates reversal, despite the existence of evidence sufficient to warrant a deviation from the guideline; and 2) the court's reliance on Mother's expenses and lifestyle, rather than on those of Father and his children, precludes us from implying findings adequate to support the deviation ordered by the court.
