Child Support

In Florida, both parents are required to contribute to the financial support of a child. Child Support is governed by Florida Statute Section 61.30. Child Support is calculated in accordance with the Child Support Guidelines Worksheet, although the Court may deviate from the guidelines. When child support is calculated, each parties' income along with the health insurance for the parties and children, child care costs, tax credits/exemptions and the amount of overnights the child spends with each parent is taken into consideration.
