How Child-Support Decisions Are Made

Child support is an issue that every parent will face when they are no longer together with the other parent.

In the State of Florida, child support is based on the Florida Child Support Guidelines, which takes into account both parents' incomes, time-sharing, and the costs of childcare and health insurance.

Because time-sharing is a factor in calculating child support, you should know what child support you will be paying or receiving before you enter into a time-sharing agreement with the other parent. You do not want to find yourself later being ordered to receive less than what you need to support your child, or paying too much leaving you unable to meet your other monthly obligations.
