Child Support

How Child Support Is Calculated In Florida

Under the law, you and your spouse each have a responsibility to support your children with their needs and your financial abilities until they reach the age of 18, marry or become financially independent. The state of Florida outlines specific guidelines for the amount of child support to be paid based on the income of the parents, the number of children and the custody arrangement. Adjustments will be made for a variety of lifestyle factors. If you wish to determine child support for your situation, contact an attorney from our office for guidance.

We Can Help You Address Child Support Concerns

At Canan Law, we can help you address specific question and issues such as:

  • The amount of child support likely to be paid

Enforcing Current Child Support Orders

Many individuals already have a child support court order in place but are having problems getting the other party to pay. In different situations, a party may not be able to make payments due to unforeseen circumstances, and the other spouse is denying visitation rights or access to your child. Determining child support can also call paternity into question.

In each of these situations, the matter should be brought to the attention of the court. If you need help, reach out to our team. Feel free to email us online, or call our law offices at (904) 849-2266.
