How Does Child Support Work in Florida?
Under Florida law, both parents are responsible for raising and providing financially for the care of any children under the age of 18, even after a divorce. Child support helps ensure that the minor children of a divorced couple will have what they need to live and thrive.
Schedule a consultation with our firm today to discuss your case, challenges, and best course of action. Our team of child support attorneys in Orlando handle each case with sensitivity, confidentiality, and expertise.
How Is Child Support Calculated in Florida?
Child support calculations will be based mostly on the incomes of both parents, though a judge can increase or otherwise adjust the amount in the child’s best interests (such as if they have unusual medical expenses). Payment is often made by the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent, and the custodial parent’s financial obligation is assumed in their day-to-day care for the child.
In most cases, child support payments will continue until a child turns 18 years old or graduates high school, unless they are emancipated.
