Child support is a financial obligation that provides for a child or children. If you and your spouse have children, this may be one of the most important aspects to be determined in your divorce, along with custody of your children. To ensure that you and your family are treated fairly, you need a Boca Raton attorney who understands how child support should be applied in your situation.
Klein Law Group can provide the information you need to determine if your child support payments are being fairly calculated by the court. If there appears to be a deviation from the child support guidelines by the court or there are questions as to the validity of actual income figures being used, we work hard to ensure that child support payments are calculated accurately based on proper data.
Calculating Child Support Payments
The state of Florida expects both parents to provide for the support of their children after a divorce or if the parents never married. Child support payments are made by the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent to help support the children.
A court determines the amount of child support to be paid by the noncustodial parent. This amount is calculated based on the Florida child support guidelines and is influenced by factors such as the combined incomes of both parents and the amount of overnight parenting time each receives with the children.
Our child support lawyers can also represent you if modifications to your child support agreement are necessary. A modification to child support payments can be requested if:
- There are significant changes in circumstances for one or both parents
- There are significant changes in the financial needs of the children
- There are changes made to the parenting or time-sharing plans
We can also help you with enforcing child support agreements if the other parent is not keeping up with regularly scheduled payments. A child support attorney can be your best chance of ensuring that child support payments are made as determined by the court and that they are not late or delinquent.
