Generally, Florida parents are both legally required to support their children until they are 18 years old or through graduation from high school depending on certain circumstances, regardless of whether they were married or not. Parents may have to support a disabled child through adulthood. Dependent upon the issues below, one parent will be required to pay support to the other:
- Each parent’s net income
- Number of nights the child spends with each parent
- Educational or day care costs
- Medical, dental and other health insurance costs paid by the parents
- Number of children
Our knowledgeable child support attorneys help parents calculate the required child support and ensure the payments are fair, based on detailed financial information provided by the client, such as tax returns, proof of income and expenses. We will also address any special circumstances that may require additional calculations of amounts of child support to be paid, for high net income earners, private schools and special needs children.
