Florida Child Support laws

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

  • The necessary award amount determines by taking the income earned by both the parents into account individually.
  • The income aggregates 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 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 a full-time high school student, the support will end at the age of 19.
