Child Support Attorney in Celebration

Understanding Child Support

Child support is one of the most important factors involved in a divorce or separation case. If you and your spouse have decided to go your separate ways, you still need to keep your children’s best interests in mind. Child support is a monthly payment made by one parent to the other to be used for the living expenses of the child, such as food, clothing, toiletries, medical expenses, and education. In most cases, the noncustodial parent is required to make support payments, but there are also cases where both parents make equal contributions to the child’s needs. You can come to your own child support agreement outside of court in a mediation or uncontested divorce case, or you can fight for a fair support order in a contested divorce with the representation of a Celebration lawyer.

Determining the Amount of Child Support

Florida uses specific guidelines when determining the amount of child support each parent is required to pay per month. The Florida Courts Child Support Guidelines Chart was taken directly from 2012 Fl. Stat. ยง 61.30 and provides a detailed list of how much support each parent must provide for a combined income of $800 per month all the way up to $10,000 per month, for 1 to 6 children. These are only guidelines, however; every case is different and may have special circumstances that affect the court’s final decision. Your best chance at recovering fair compensation is to retain a skilled Osceola County divorce lawyer to represent you in court.
