Lawyer in Orlando and Central Florida

After a parenting plan has been negotiated and approved by the court, or ordered by court as a divorce or family law ruling regarding which parent will have primary custodial responsibility for the children, child support must then be determined. It is important to note that child support is soley for the benefit and care of the minor children. When determining the amount of child support to be paid, the court will not give any consideration for the custodial parent's personal financial needs other than that which is necessary for the support of the children.

Depending upon your specific circumstances, in the State of Florida, the court considers many issues regarding child support including, but not limited to:

  • Timesharing (formally known as child custody) arrangements;

  • How much parenting time each parent has (now known as Shared Parenting);

  • The income of each parent;

  • Total number of children;

  • Unusual medical expenses;

  • Day care expenses;

  • Insurance;

  • The amount of alimony received by the custodial parent;

  • Any children with special needs (medical or psychological);

  • Other relevant factors that are deemed necessary financial means for the benefit of the minor child;

  • Or mutually agreed upon issues that require additional funding.

A parent may make a request to change the existing court ordered amount of child support owed when a substantial change in the circumstances surrounding the support of the child can be effectively demonstrated to the court. However, any modification must still be in the best interest of the child or children.

If the parent who is ordered to pay child support does not adhere to the court order by not paying child support, the receiving parent may seek a child support enforcement action. We will help you through the process by filing a petition or motion for enforcement or for contempt of court. We will file the petition and serve the person with legal documents, and be there for you at the hearing. The offending parent may face serious penalties if the orders are not followed. He or she may also be responsible for reimbursement of attorney fees and costs as well.

Child support issues can be very complex, be the point of heated arguments, and are best served with the legal advice and assistance of experience legal counsel.

When you must address legal issues relating to child support, divorce or other family law issues or disputes, we urge you to be proactive in ensuring your legal rights are protected and that you are treated fairly.
