How is the amount of child support determined in Florida?
FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY FORT MYERS | CHILD SUPPORT LAWYER FORT MYERS
Child support is determined in Florida through a guideline calculation, and it is based on the combined income of both parents. It also takes into account what percentage of time sharing that each parent has with the child, also if the parent is contributing financially for the child in other ways. Meaning if they’re paying for child care cost, if they’re paying the health insurance cost, that can go towards their financial liability for the child and can reduce their child support payments.
