Child support is mandatory in Florida. It is court ordered and based upon Florida law. Whether the parents were married or not, child support is mandatory and required. A party cannot avoid paying child support even if they claim to be unemployed or disable. The amount of child support awarded is based upon the income of the parents. The amount of overnights that the child spends with each parent, the disparity in income and other factors are considered when determines how much child support is to be ordered.
At the Kirlew Law Firm, we assist our clients in child support related cases. Child support is often ordered as a part of a divorce or a child custody & visitation case (often referred to as a paternity action). Child support can also be awarded without the parties ever filing for a divorce or child custody & visitation case.
