As a father or mother, you have a moral obligation to provide for your child. And as a parent, you have a legal obligation to support your child. Whether you are considering filing for divorce or already have, you may be concerned about how you will be able to provide for your child and how the child will be affected by the legal proceedings.

Contact our firm to learn more about how a child support calculation is calculated and how we can help you obtain an order for child support that is fair and in your child's best interests.

How Is Child Support Calculated in Florida?

Florida uses a specific formula to determine how much child support will be paid or received. When calculating child support, Florida statutes take into consideration the amount of time each parent spends with their child, the amount of income each parent makes, and the cost of the child's health insurance. The amount of child support is determined by the parents' combined net disposable income and then divided based on the number of children they have in common.

To calculate child support, it is necessary to determine the following:

  • The gross monthly income of each parent
  • The number of children they have in common
  • The percentage of time the children spend with each parent

Once those three items are determined, the total amount of child support due is calculated by the following formula:

CS = parent} x x

CS = parent} x x

CP = parent} x

CP = parent} x

CS = parent} x x

CS = parent} x x

Child support payments are made by the parent with the higher income, and the payments are collected by the state on behalf of the custodial parent. Child support payments can be modified if there is a change in circumstances, such as a change in either parent's income. You should consult with an experienced family law attorney to discuss how to request a modification.

    "Knows exactly how to approach a case."
    Coming from someone who has never really had great experience with attorneys, John was above and beyond in court. He completely dominates his specialty, thinks of everything, is unbelievably well-versed in the law and knows exactly how to approach a case without getting caught up in the awful and uncomfortable details that make litigation so depraved. Since hiring him I never felt taken advantage of, or unsettled. I always felt that he had me best interest and used the law to express that. There is not one minute in court were I felt uneasy about his approach. He was brilliant, calm and had an extremely confident demeanor. I can't thank him enough for keeping my babies here with me in a custody/relocation case that had been really ugly and toxic for many years before hiring him. Today in court, John was my hero and my husband and I can sleep well, knowing he fought for us.

    "I highly recommend John Schutz."
    Mr. Schutz represented me in a highly contentious case wherein my ex-wife falsely alleged child abuse and many other horrible things to gain advantage. She spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in hiring a team of attorneys, forensic accountants, HR Specialists, and real estate appraisers. It was a funny sight in court….just me and John versus their entire Army. Even more amusing was how he so brilliantly and efficiently undermined all of the opposing team’s positions. The CPA’s 401K valuation was thrown out, the vocational evaluator’s opinion was rejected, I got the house and equal timesharing with my child. My home controls where our child attends school. We won on all counts…. Alimony was unavoidable, though the amount she was awarded was significantly less in amount and duration than what she was demanding. If you have the means to ‘Invest in the Best,’ I highly recommend John Schutz.

    "Mr. Schutz is a true professional."
    Mr. John Schutz is an excellent lawyer. I live in Peru and was not able to get any timesharing with my kids who have lived in Florida for 8 years. Mr. Schutz took on my case and made my dream possible. My children visited me in Peru for the first time in 8 years and I will be able to spend Christmas with them too here in Peru. I will be forever grateful.

    "Genius divorce lawyer"

    John Schutz is a brilliant lawyer. Not only did Mr. Schutz do an excellent job cleaning up the mess from the previous lawyer, he in my estimation was key in me ultimately obtaining a very good outcome. I had a very contentious divorce and the opposing lawyer was very unprofessional and somewhat abusive. Mr. Schutz through his professionalism and excellent people skills was able to reign in the opposing attorney's unprofessional conduct. Mr. Schutz ran circles around the opposing attorney as he was always prepared and was quick on his feet. He is well worth the money in my opinion. Due to his skill and the ability to outclass the opposing attorney, a trial was avoided which ultimately would have been far more costly. Highly recommend.
