Establishing Child Support & Modifications
If you are currently going through a divorce or paternity determination for your minor child, the awarding of child support is an integral part of these processes. Under Florida law, both parents are required to provide support for their children. This is done in order to ensure that a child’s basic needs are met and to allow the child to benefit from the monetary resources of the parent. For these reasons, child support is the right of the child, not the parents.
In Florida, any parent who resides the state may petition the Florida courts for child support, or request support during a divorce or paternity case. The amount of child support to be received is based on child support guidelines provided within the Florida statutes.
