Yes, child support is mandatory in Florida. A parent’s financial support is the child’s legal right under Florida law, which means that parents can’t waive their obligation to pay it.
In an ideal situation, both parents would be responsible for exactly half of their children’s expenses. However, since it’s unlikely that each parent’s monthly expenses and income are the same, this ideal situation rarely occurs. Even if parents in Florida split physical custody 50/50, the parent with the higher annual income will most likely be the one to pay child support.
Although there is no way of knowing the exact amount of child support a parent will receive, we provide our clients with accurate expectations based on child support guideline calculations in Florida. We realize the vagueness and uncertainty of child support cases can cause a great deal of anxiety in our clients, which is why we try to give them estimations that are as accurate as possible.
At Boeller Law, P.A., we offer all of our clients the same level of high-quality representation they need and deserve in order to make the divorce process less daunting and overwhelming. Thanks to her background in mental health counseling and extensive experience with handling family law matters, Attorney Sara Sawyer Boeller can provide you with the compassionate legal guidance you need at this difficult time of your life.
