Child Support

CHILD SUPPORT IN FLORIDA

Every child has the right to receive financial support from his or her parent. Additionally, each parent has the responsibility to provide for his or her child. Family Diplomacy can help you determine the correct amount of child support for your circumstances.

CHILD SUPPORT GUIDELINES

Florida law provides a formula, the child support guidelines, that establishes an amount of child support that the state presumes to be appropriate. This formula is based on, among other factors, the following: (i) the income of the parents; (ii) insurances costs; (iii) non-reimbursed medical expenses; and (iv) daycare costs. We will take the time to sit down with you and calculate as well as explain this presumptive amount and whether a deviation might be appropriate in your case.

CHILD SUPPORT AND THE COLLABORATIVE FAMILY LAW PROCESS

Are you interested in a private, healthier process which keeps your personal and financial information out of the public courtroom and helps everyone, including attorneys, to focus on the children? Learn how the Collaborative Family Law model can be used in your child support case.
