Child Support

Legal Representation for Child Support Issues

Whether a child is born to a married couple or to two people who have not taken that formal step, when the family with the minor child(ren) are faced with a break up, one of the most sensitive areas of dealing with the break-up are the child(ren)'s welfare. It is necessary to settle matters such as education, healthcare and custody, as well as child support. It is essential that fair and equitable child support payments be worked out, so that the court-ordered payments are actually made and the child is not left to suffer with inadequate or no financial support. The guidelines for child support are set forth in the Florida Statues, and our knowledgeable attorneys will be able to go over these guidelines with you and predict any possible variation to these guidelines which the court may take into consideration.

Child Support Calculations in Florida

A number of factors are taken into account when determining the child support amount in Florida, including:

  • income of both parents, including bonuses and commissions
  • income from a business owned by either parent
  • the number of children who are subject to child support in this action
  • daycare costs paid by both parents
  • health care insurance costs of both parents, including medical, dental and vision

Subtleties in your particular case may be a cause for a variation of the child support, or it may be necessary in the future to ask for a modification of child support due to a change in circumstances, effectively increasing or possibly decreasing the support received.
