How is Child Support Calculated in Florida?
Consult with a Skilled Tampa Child Support 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.
