Charlotte County Child Support Lawyer
Need Assistance with your Child Support Case?
A divorce can be very devastating to a child, possibly leading to feelings of instability and insecurity. Your children's welfare is considered to be the most important point to address by the Florida court system. When a divorce occurs, their well being can be greatly affected through economic changes in life style. When confronting the issue of child support, having a skilled Florida child support attorney is crucial to ensuring your children will have the wherewithal they need to keep their quality of life.
Aside from continuing to love your children and seeing them often, you have no higher obligation as a parent than to continue supporting your children after the divorce. Child support is more important than any other debt or financial obligation. Both parents are required to support the children but the non-residential parent will be directed to pay his/her portion of the support to the other.
Florida has adopted guidelines for child support that the court is required to follow. There are a number of factors which are considered by the Court to determine what amount should be paid in support for your family. They include ages of the children, the number of children involved, income of the custodial spouse, income of the non-custodial spouse and the needs of your children under the guidelines established by the state.
