Child Support Calculations in Florida


Under Florida law, both parents are required to provide support for their children. This is done in order to ensure that a child’s basic needs are met and to allow the child to benefit from the monetary resources of the parent. For these reasons, child support is the right of the child, not the parents.. Under Florida child support law, payment amount is determined under statewide guidelines.

We understand the complexities involved in determining and obtaining child support and offer helpful counsel to make certain that your child’s rights and interests are protected,

Making Child Support Modification in Florida


Parents can seek modification of a prior child support award when it is based on a showing of a substantial, permanent, and unanticipated change in circumstances. This can include:

  • Loss of a job

  • Termination of daycare or childcare

  • Disability

  • Substantial increase or decrease in income (15% or greater)

A request for modification of child support should be filed with the court immediately if any of these circumstances arise. This is because modification is effective only from the date of filing onwards – it does not apply to child support owed prior to the filing. If you have had a recent significant change in circumstances that you believe merits modification of child support, you should contact an experienced Florida family law attorney immediately.
