Child Support

In the state of Florida, both parents must pay child support to their children. The amount of child support each parent is required to pay is determined by Florida Child Support Guidelines which can be found in Florida Statute 61.30. Child support amounts are based on income and adjusted to consider health insurance, daycare and parental timesharing.

Whether you are just beginning the divorce procedure or are attempting to change an existing child support order, it is important to have a skilled and knowledgeable attorney to make sure you are paying or receiving the correct amount of child support. Florida child support guidelines are outlined in Florida Statutes and are extremely particular as to the amount of child support each parent owes their child.

Though it is not required by law, the parties may agree that one or both parents shall be responsible for healthcare payments, health insurance payments, daycare, private school tuition, and school uniforms.
