How are child care expenses divided in Florida?


There is no set way that childcare expenses can be divided in Florida. Sometimes it depends on the parents. If a parent is already paying for childcare cost, then what that would mean is in the child support guideline, they would be getting credit for the childcare cost that they are paying; and the other parent who is not paying or contributing to that childcare cost would have to pay more money for child support. Things such as health insurance, that is something too that either parent can decide who is going to be paying for the health insurance, and that will also reduce their financial obligation for that child in a child support guideline.
