Is it obligatory to file a Child Support Guideline Worksheet in an uncontested divorce with minor children in Florida?

West Palm Beach, FL |
Filed under: Uncontested divorce

Husband and wife are filing an uncontested divorce - they are filing together and both will be present at hearing. They have 2 minor children; child support is not an issue since father agrees to pay child support and it has been entered in the divorce filing.
Is it necessary or obligatory for them to file a Child Support Guideline Worksheet? Is it also necessary or obligatory to file a Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Affidavit? Thank you for your advice.

Also, do they have to file for mediation even though they both agree on everything in this divorce?

yes. the court wants to sure that child support is being paid in accordance with child support guidelines. It is also necessary to file UCCJEA, as most judges will not grant divorce without proper paperwork being filed.
