When it comes to children of divorced parents, the Florida courts base their decisions on time-sharing, decision making and financial support on what’s in the best interest of the child with both parents sharing in the responsibility.
While every situation is unique, the court will use the following general factors when calculating the payment amount that will go into the support order required to take care of the child’s daily needs as defined by Florida Law.
- Net income of both parents
- Number and age of children being supported
- Cost of childcare by both parents
- Health care cost
- Educational expenses
- Special needs
