How Does the Cost of My Children’s Health Insurance Affect Florida Child Support?
Before the court finishes calculating how much child support will be paid in a Florida Divorce or a Florida Paternity case, the court will take into account the amount of health insurance premiums for the children.
First, your expert Tampa divorce attorney will assist the court in determining how much basic child support should be paid based upon the net incomes of the parents under the Florida Child Support Guidelines. Many people pay some sort of health insurance for their children, so the court will next add the cost of those health insurance premiums.
Once this is added to the basic child support amount, the court is closer to giving the final Florida child support amount to the parents.
Bottom Line: The mathematical child support calculation includes the cost of health insurance for the children and your expert Tampa divorce lawyer can assist in this calculation.

All Florida divorcing spouses who have children must complete a Parent Education and Family Stabilization class before a divorce will be granted by the court. This parenting class is mandatory because it helps to minimize the emotional trauma of the divorce on the children. Each parent must independently complete the course before the divorce enters the court. They must provide the court with a certificate of completion to prove the obligation has been met.
