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.

    Former Client

  • Divorce Case

    “My Fiancé was going through a very rough divorce before we met Mrs. Fisher. He had a Lawyer who didn’t care how his case turns out which wasn’t fear to us. He met with Mrs. Fisher and she took on his case. She made sure her and her staff were on top on everything. They kept us informed about any little changes and made sure we didn’t stress. She didn’t just come to court when it was time to come to court, she was hands on with everything from the beginning to the end. We didn’t know what our outcome would be with the first lawyer, but with Mrs. Fisher, we had confidence that everything would work out for the best. If you’re looking for a great, respectful, outstanding, hands on lawyer, Mrs. Fisher and her staff is your best go.You can stop your worrying and be able to relax while they handle it all. I’m so Grateful for her staff because now my spouse is divorced and we are now planning our wedding. Thank you Mrs. Fisher and your staff! My family and I will be forever Grateful. L. Edwards”
