Determining Child Support

As many states do, the state of Florida has a set of guidelines that must be followed when calculating child support.

When determining the appropriate child support payments, the court will consider:

  • Each parent’s income
  • The age of the child
  • The child’s life before the divorce (education, afterschool activities, standard of living, etc.)
  • The number of children involved
  • Each parent’s potential earning capacity

Child support payments must be made until the child completes high school or turns 19 years old. The only way to change your child support obligation is to request modifications with the court. Modifications will only be approved if there is a legitimate reason for the change, such as if a parent lost a job or earned a significant pay raise.

Seek Assistance from the Law Office of Jody L. Fisher

Even in an amicable divorce, it is always in you and your child's best interests to seek legal counsel from a Leesburg child support attorney. Our firm can ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive or pay the appropriate amount of child support.
