Child Support

Boca Raton Divorce Lawyer, Personal Injury & Civil Litigation Since 1984

In most instances where a divorce or other family matter arises involving children under the age of 18, child support is going to become an issue. In Florida, lawmakers believe that every child has the right to have the financial support of both of their parents, if that is possible. With the help of an experienced Boca Raton family law lawyer, you can receive the assistance that you need during a very confusing time. Financial disclosure may be exchanged, financial affidavits will be filed, child support guidelines will be applied, income withholding orders may be required, and a variety of confusing factors may be encountered that make legal guidance advisable to address issues involving child support.

Florida’s child support guidelines focuses on the net incomes of both parents, how much is paid toward a child’s daycare and health insurance, and the total number of overnights the child has with each parent. Your attorney will guide you through each and every step and will work with you to secure the best outcome possible when it comes to child support.

Providing You With Long-Term Guidance

Even after child support is established by the court and an order is in place, child support issues do not necessarily cease. As time goes on there may be a change in circumstances which would warrant a modification of child support. In these instances, the child support order may be subject to a modification if there is a significant change in circumstance for either parent. Perhaps the child spends more time overnight with one parent than the other, one parent has a significant rise in income, one parent faces a diminution in income, or the child has special needs.

Childcare costs, health insurance, changes in income, prolonged illness, disability of either parent, or increased or decreased need of the child are factors. The statutes continue to evolve and need to be reviewed.

Resolving Your Child Support Case

Child support matters may be resolved faster than other family law cases. Your Florida family law attorney will work hard to amicably resolve child support issues such that an agreed order may be submitted to the Court for finalization. However, there are times when one or both parties do not agree on what the guideline amount will be. In these instances, the matter may be set for trial where the facts are presented to the court. In that case, your attorney will present the evidence to the Court in a light most favorably to you.
