Destin Child Support Attorney

Serving Clients Throughout The Florida Panhandle

Child support is not alimony or spousal support. Under Florida state law, child support obligations are ordered by the courts; determined according to a prescribed formula that takes into account a variety of financial and parenting time factors. Under supervision of the court, parties may agree to additional child support payments to meet specific needs of the child, which will then become part of the formal support order.

Support guidelines factors include:

  • Combined respective incomes of the parties
  • Ability of one party to pay versus needs of children
  • Percentage of custody and parenting time
  • Additional child expenses agreed to by the payer
  • Fluctuation of the payer's income
