Child Support

Calculating an Accurate Agreement Based on Formula and Finances

Due to the complex regulations and guidelines that are involved, child support is an especially complex area of family law in Florida. At Elkins & Freedman, our Boca Raton child support attorneys take the time to walk you step by step through child support calculations and ensure that your child support accurately reflects your situation. Our experienced legal team — we have helped more than 10,000 clients through the Florida divorce process — provides you with honest and clear advice about your situation, and it gives you the tools you need to ensure support enforcement in an efficient and effective manner.

If you are already paying or receiving child support, and your financial situation has changed, we can help. Whether you have lost a job or are in financial distress for some other reason, we can help you modify child support.

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 Boca Raton, Orlando and other surrounding communities will help you understand all of the factors that need to be taken into account in your case.

Alan Elkins proved to be a very respectful and knowledgeable attorney during a rather difficult divorce proceeding. He accomplished the objectives in a very reasonable amount of time, when most attorneys would have taken twice as long. Most importantly, he made me feel comfortable and secure during the process with reasonable fees to boot! I was lucky to have chosen him and would refer him to anybody. Thanks again, Alan.
