In Florida, both parents are required to pay child support. When one parent earns more than the other, the higher earner is usually required to pay the lower earning parent child support.
Florida's child support is based on:
Florida's child support formula uses a fixed percentage of income to be paid, depending on the number of children to receive payments. Then further adjustments can be made for other expenses, such as health insurance, daycare, and other costs.
Pazos Law Group has experience helping parents, both men and women, determine an accurate and fair child support amount. We can also resolve disputes and complex issues regarding calculating child support, such as when a parent is unemployed, underemployed, or not disclosing income. Our South Florida child support attorneys are focused on effective, expedient solutions so your child has the financial support he or she needs.
Child support must be paid until the child turns 18 years old or graduates from high school, whichever occurs first. If a parent's financial circumstances have changed, child support amount can be modified.
At Pazos Law Group, we do our best to minimize the disruption that a family law case can have on your children's lives, while maximizing your family's resources.
