Elements of Florida Child Support Guidelines
A child support calculator developed by the state of Florida determines what your child support obligations or payments will be. The formula this calculator uses considers many different factors, including:
- Custodial schedule/number of overnights
- Gross monthly income of each party
- Cost of children's health insurance
- Costs of day care
There are many other expenses that need to be taken into account to reach an appropriate child support figure. At our firm, a child support lawyer serving Orlando and other surrounding communities will help you understand all of the factors that need to be taken into account in your case.
