How is child support calculated in Florida?
The courts take the view that both parents should share as equally as possible
in three areas of parenting:
In practice, however, the parent with a larger income typically covers
a greater share of the expenses of raising the child. Support is usually
paid to the parent who spends the most time with the child, but each case
is different, and the income of both parents is part of the calculation.
In the case of an unmarried mother, it is necessary to establish
paternity before seeking child support. Our seasoned divorce lawyer in Jacksonville
can assist you with that process and petition the court for support from
the father of your child. We can also assist someone facing a paternity
action when he is not the father of the child. Our firm has built a reputation
for our legal skills and dedication to the best possible results for our clients.
