How is Child Support Calculated in Florida?
Support paid for the benefit the children is called child support.
Child support is a right that belongs to the children, not the parents, and you cannot waive it.
In Florida, every parent is responsible for the support of his or her child or children. A parent’s child support obligation is presumptively determined by a statutory formula known as the child support guidelines, and it is based on several factors such as the respective net income of each parent, cost of health care insurance for the children, cost of daycare and the number of overnights each parent has with the children.
