Your Fort Myers Child Support Attorney

Child Support is governed by the Florida child support statute. The amount to be paid must be calculated based on this statute and the Child Support Guidelines Worksheet which essentially uses the parties’ net incomes after taxes and other allowable deductions. Child support is determined using the Child Support Guidelines Worksheet by adding together both parents net income, and depending on how many children they have, the amount they should spend to raise their children is already figured out, given their net available income.

Understanding Your Rights

Each spouse will contribute a certain percentage. The paying party’s percentage is calculated in proportion to the other parent’s income. If a party is unemployed or underemployed and fails to pay court ordered support, the judge can order the party to seek employment and enter a job training or work program.

If the parties have minor children, then a Financial Affidavit and Guidelines Worksheet must be filed with the Court before the parties can obtain a divorce.
