Child Support

The support of a child is the responsibility of both parents under state law, whether they are married, formerly married, or never married. Florida has established a formula to calculate child support based on the parents’ incomes. In many cases, the parent with a larger income typically covers a greater share of the expenses of raising the child. Support is usually paid to the parent who spends the most time with the child, but each case is different, and the income of both parents is part of the calculation. You should always hire an experienced Florida family law attorney when seeking child support to ensure that the parents’ incomes are correctly discovered and used in the Florida Child Support Guidelines.
