Child Support

Payment of child support is not optional…

 
 

Overview

 
 

Child Support in Florida is set in accordance with the child support guidelines in Section 61.30, Florida Statutes.  The guidelines establish the amount based on each parent's monthly net income, the parent's combined income, the number of children, the parent's time-sharing-schedule, and the possible application of child support credits, e.g. child/ren's health care coverage costs, child care costs, expenses for non-covered medical and dental care, and prescription drugs for the child/ren.  Payment of child support is not optional, or negotiable between the parties; it is required by law and intended to benefit the minor child/ren.
