Florida law is very clear on how much each party will be responsible for in child support based on both parents’ income and the number of children. However, we have recently discussed that the court can deviate from the normal payment schedule for certain unusual circumstances like the care of an elderly parent.

When a divorce occurs and minor children are involved child support is a very important matter that needs to be properly planned and configured. Under Florida law both parents are required to contribute towards the support of their children.
The first step in the calculation of child support in Florida is to figure out the mother and father’s respective monthly net income. This is done by taking monthly gross income and subtracting certain allowable deductions.

One of the most common issues I deal with daily as a family law practitioner is the modification of child support. Yet, surprisingly, most divorced parents incurring either end of a child support obligation are in the dark about what circumstances may subject them to a modification.
Child support determinations are within the sound discretion of the trial court, subject to the child support guidelines in Section61.30, (2003). The child support guidelines are the starting point for determining the appropriate amount of child support.

When the Florida court decides on the issue of child custody and visitation, the gender of the parents is not considered. For example, a mother will not automatically receive custody of the children just because she is the mother. The judge must only consider what is in the best interests of the child. Florida divorce law requires Shared Parental Responsibility. This means that even though the child may live with one parent, the other parent has equal say in raising the child. Each party must be consulted on the education, health, religion, and discipline of the child. And, if the parties cannot agree on these important issues, the judge will make the decisions.
