Jacksonville Child Support Lawyer

Put 90+ Years of Experience to Work for You

The support of a child is the responsibility of both parents under state law, whether they are married, formerly married, or never married.

Child support is determined by state guidelines, with some of the major factors being:

  • The number of children
  • The income of each parent
  • Costs associated with child care
  • Costs associated with medical insurance
  • Time spent with the children

At the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A., our Jacksonville divorce attorneys have the skill and dedication to successfully represent you in divorce and family law matters. We are ready to meet with you to discuss the situation and determine the best course of action for protecting your interests.

In divorce and family law matters, you need an attorney who is not only compassionate but also effective. Our skill, experience and reputation can make a difference in the outcome of your case.

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.
