The Florida child support guidelines adopt the incomes shares model for computing the award amount.

  • The basic award amount is determined by taking the income earned by both the parents into account, individually. The income is aggregated to determine the proportionate liability of each parent for bearing the expense of the child as a joint family.
  • Coupled with the basic award amount, additional expenses relating to childcare, health insurance, and child education expenses are also added.
  • The support will terminate when the child reaches the age of 18 and in the case of full time high school student, the support will terminate in the age of 19.
