Maitland Child Support Attorney

How Are Payments Calculated in Florida?

One of the situations that parents may have to deal with following a divorce involves child support. In the State of Florida, child support laws are based on the Income Share Model, which calculates monthly payments according to the number of children in the household and the net income of each parent.

Because every situation is different, it is critically important to ensure your payments are fairly and accurately calculated. Our Maitland child support attorney at The Troum Law Firm, P.A. has an extensive amount of experience helping clients handle these issues as they go through a divorce, and is well-prepared to assist you!

Child support payments are set based on a variety of factors, including:

  • The salary and wages of each parent
  • Bonuses, commissions, allowances, overtime, and tips
  • Business income
  • Worker’s compensation, Social Security, and disability benefits
  • Royalties, trusts, and estates
  • Interest and dividends
  • Pensions
  • Alimony from a previous marriage

Special Circumstances Requiring Payment Adjustments

Child support laws are designed to make sure that the arrangement is fair for all parties involved, and payments can be increased or decreased by up to five percent for a variety of reasons.

Some examples of valid legal reasons for an adjustment include, extraordinary educational or medical expenses, independent income of the child, seasonal variations in one or both of the parent’s income or expenses, special needs of the child, and the age of the child. In addition to this, there also exist special provisions for children who spend a substantial amount of overnights with the nonresidential parent.
