How is Child Support Calculated in Florida?

Consult with a Skilled Tampa Divorce Lawyer Today

In the state of Florida, the amount of child support a non-custodial parent is required to pay a custodial parent will vary in amount depending on their monthly income and the number of children being supported. Based on these factors, a basic child support order will be issued in accordance with the state’s predetermined guidelines. This amount can be increased or decreased at a judge’s discretion to accommodate for a child’s special needs and cover a child’s heath care costs. Child support guidelines are updated periodically to adjust for inflation.

To get a better idea of how child support may be calculated in your specific situation, contact our office or call (813) 867-7936 to discuss your circumstances with a Tampa family law attorney from our firm today.
