How Child Support Works In Florida
Whether you are a parent in the process of divorcing or are already divorced, it’s important to understand your rights and how Florida handles child support. Otherwise, you could be overpaying or not receiving enough.
Florida courts calculate child support by taking you and your child’s other parent into account. Using a set of guidelines, the court determines how much of that combined net income the child would receive with both parents in the household.
You or your co-parent are generally responsible for making payments until the minor child turns 18 years old. However, this may not be the case if there are extenuating circumstances such as an agreement between you and your co-parent to prolong child support.
