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.

Florida divorce papers must be filed with the court in either the county where the defendant resides or the county where the spouses last lived together prior to separating. Most divorces are filed in the county in which the filing spouse resides.
