Demystifying Child Support

“Child support” refers to the court-ordered payments that one parent makes to the other to help cover the costs of raising their child. Child support comes into play when parents are divorced or separated, or when paternity has been established.

Florida’s child support guidelines encompass these and other factors. The guidelines are designed to ensure that children receive the necessary financial support from both parents, proportionate to their income. The Florida child support calculator is based on these factors, but it isn’t definitive.
