West Palm Beach Child Support Lawyer
Child support is an important element in any paternity action or divorce where there are children of the marriage. Your children need financial support in order to live. The needs of each family differ greatly. While many of your family law issues can be carefully crafted to suit your specific needs and goals, child support is determined according to a mathematical formula outlined by Florida law.
Florida child support is calculated according to a formulaic set of guidelines and mandated legal formula. The formula weighs many variables, including:
- Parental incomes
- Child care and medical coverage expenses
- Number of children
- Amount of time each parent spends with the child, as determined by the time-sharing plan
In certain circumstances, the amount of child support to be paid (or received) can deviate from the guideline formula, depending on certain special needs of a particular child that may require additional special medical expenses, schooling expenses, or other such special circumstances.
