Child Support


The state of Florida has enacted a set of laws that govern the calculation of child support, through the use of child support guidelines worksheet. The child support guidelines are based on the parent’s combined net income estimated to have been allocated to the child as if the parents and children were living in an intact household. Child support obligation arises from the principle of proving the necessities to the dependents. The obligation to pay child support falls on both parents, however, not often equally. Florida has strict guidelines for child support, and some of the factors that are taken into account are:


  1. The combined incomes of the parents
  2. The number of children
  3. The percentage of overnight stays with each parent
  4. Extraordinary medical, psychological, educational, or dental expenses

         

Child support is a way to ensure that the child will have what he or she needs to become a productive member of society.
