Calculating Child Support in Florida
All parents have a legal obligation to support their children financially, so when one parent is given primary custody of the children in a divorce, the court will typically order the noncustodial parent to pay a monthly support amount to the parent with primary custody. The monthly support amount is determined according to a statutory formula that takes each parent’s income into account, and a complete and accurate income assessment is essential to an accurate child support award. We can help in this process by making sure that the other spouse is not hiding assets or misrepresenting income, and by making sure your own financial situation is fairly represented.
