Getting child support is important to your child’s well-being. The amount of awarded child support is based on Florida Guidelines outlined in Florida Statute 61.03. A child support order sets the amount and type of support parents are required to provide for their children.
The amount of child support a parent is responsible to pay depends on the income and assets of both parents. We will ask parents to give us information about their finances such as paychecks and income tax returns so we can apply the guidelines to determine the child support payment amount.
Benefits that may be included in a Child Support Order:
- Paternity, if the parents were not married when the child was born
- Amount of child support that must be paid
- Medical insurance, if reasonable and available
- Medical costs not covered by insurance
