Calculating Child Support In Florida
In Florida, parents cannot decide among themselves how much child support is acceptable. In fact, the amount of child support that you think you need, or the amount of child support that you think you can afford to pay is irrelevant. Child support is calculated by a statutory formula that takes into consideration the following:
- Number of overnights the child or children spend with each parent
- Each parent’s net income
- Costs of health and dental insurance for each parent and child or children
- The cost of child care, including day care or aftercare
- Private education or tutoring
Our skilled attorneys will take the time to understand your goals, so they can tailor their approach to fit your needs. If you are a nonworking parent, our attorneys will explain your rights and responsibilities while making sure you understand your options.

We have years of experience navigating these complex cases and will stay by your side from beginning to end, making sure your rights are protected.
