Family Law Attorney: Florida Child Support

The amount of child support that a parent will pay is one of the most important determinations that a court will make in a Florida dissolution of marriage proceeding.

 

When it comes to child support, both parents, not just the non-custodial parent, have an obligation to provide support to the children of divorce. The amount of the financial obligation that each parent has is based upon statutory factors that take into consideration include the net available income of each parent, the time each parent spends with the children and other similar factors.

 

Calculating Child Support

When calculating the amount of child support that a non-custodial parent must pay, the gross and net salaries of both parties are used to establish their individual average income for the entire year. Monthly expenses and deductions are also factored in to gain an accurate picture of how much support should be paid.

After calculating income amounts, there may be factors present that can change the amount of child support. For example, if one parent exercises limited or no visitation rights, the other parent is entitled to increased child support. On the other hand, a parent that spends half of his or her time with the child will have their support payments reduced.

Financial support from each parent, as well as emotional support and spending quality time with the child of a divorce, are of the utmost importance and one should not be sacrificed for the other. In the State of Florida, child support is the duty of each parent.

 

Often, the circumstances or incomes of both the custodial and non-custodial parent can change after a divorce agreement has been filed. In such cases, the court can modify a support order after it enters a final judgment.

The staff at the law firm of Stephen K. Miller, working from several offices throughout North-Central Florida, can ensure that custodial parents get the support necessary to take care of their children and can also make sure that parents pay only what is required of them.

 

That is why anyone considering the dissolution of marriage should consult an attorney concerning any legal questions about child support, as well as spousal rights, rights of any children involved, property rights, and the financial consequences of a divorce. The knowledgeable and experienced staff at the Florida law offices of Stephen K. Miller, P.A., will analyze your unique situation and help you and your spouse create child support agreement that will work for everyone and satisfy the requirements of the State of Florida.
