Child Support

(Through: Divorce; Paternity; or Department of Revenue)

Child Support may arise anytime you have minor children. The amount of Child Support in Florida considers numerous factors. Some of those factors include: income of each parent; child care costs; health insurance costs; and the number of overnights the child(ren) spend with each parent. The Florida Statutes provide formula (also known as “child support guidelines”), wherein all of these factors are considered. Every case is different and the amount of child support that you may pay or receive, will depend on the above factors and a few others not mentioned in this section.
