In Florida, both parents, whether married or not, are obligated to support their children. Florida follows a child support model that considers the incomes of the parties, the timesharing each spends with their children and the amount of allowable deductions from the gross income to determine a child support amount.
Child support guidelines must be submitted in every divorce case and paternity case involving children. When child support is an issue in a divorce case, parents are required to file and exchange Financial Affidavits, verify individual income and expenses and complete a child support guidelines worksheet.
Our attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable in determining the child support that will likely be ordered in your case.
