how child support is calculated in florida
Florida Statue 61 provides child support guidelines
Child support calculations in Florida can be complex. That’s why having a fully knowledgeable, experienced and aggressive Florida family law attorney by your side every step of the way is important. Together, you can protect your children’s rights.
In Florida, each parent has a legal financial duty to provide for his or her child. Florida uses a formula to establish the appropriate amount of child support each parent is obligated to contribute toward the child’s living expenses.
These Florida Child Support Guidelines can be found in Florida Statute 61. This formula includes factors such as:
Child support in Florida is an obligation that’s required to last until the child turns 18 years old, graduates from high school, is emancipated, or if the child is up to 19 years of age if the child is actively pursuing a high school diploma or its equivalent. Child support obligations may be extended if the child has special needs.
To protect your child’s interests, you must choose the right family lawyers. The attorneys at Filler & Hedum Law in Longwood, Seminole County, are experienced in helping clients calculate child support no matter how complex the circumstances.
