Florida Child Support Guidelines
At the Sosa Law Office, P.A. , we assist parents in Brandon and throughout Florida's west central Gulf Coast obtain fair child support orders. Whether you are the parent who will receive child support or pay it, our lawyers will walk you through every step of the legal process and ensure support is calculated accurately.
Determining Child Support in Florida
Child support payments are calculated by a Florida statute that takes into account each parent's income and the number of overnight visits with the child or children.
While child support payments are calculated according to a statutory formula, you may still need an attorney's help to determine the payer's income and whether a deviation from the guidelines is appropriate in your case. For example, if your ex-spouse owns a business, then he or she may have some control over how much income he or she reports. If necessary, our lawyers will use forensic accountants and input income to ensure your child receives the full amount he or she is entitled to.
Our lawyers will assist you in properly completing all legal requirements and obtaining equitable child support orders. We can assist with modifications to child support payments if your income of the payer changes due to a promotion or job loss. We can also assist you with enforcement actions if your ex-spouse isn't paying child support.
