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.
