Helping Broward County With Child Support

How Courts Calculate Child Support In Florida

A child's biological parents have a duty to financially support their children until they reach the age of majority or become emancipated, or self-sufficient.

Typically, the parent who does not live with the child will need to pay child support. The courts will utilize various factors to calculate child support.

Parental Income

The gross income of both parties is one of the first steps to determining child support. However, the income from each party isn't just dependent on wages. Courts look at a variety of other income sources such as investments, pensions, Social Security, gifts, income from trusts and many other sources.

Courts also consider childcare expenses, healthcare costs, and timeshare arrangments before making a final calculation.
