How Is Child Support Calculated in Florida?

Some of the many factors that go into determining child support include:

  • The income of both of the parents
  • Any marital contracts that outline child support
  • Already existing child custody orders
  • Childcare needs
  • Parenting plans
  • Outstanding or ongoing support payments from previous marriages
  • Health insurance

Is Child Support Based on Gross or Net Income in Florida?

Child support in Florida is based on the parents’ combined net incomes (gross income minus allowable deductions).

Do You Have To Pay Child Support if You Have 50/50 Custody in Florida?

Under Florida law, one parent is required to provide child support, regardless of the custody arrangement. Even if both parents share 50/50 custody of the child, it is unlikely that each parent’s total monthly expenses are exactly the same and that their salaries are identical. In determining which parent will pay child support, Florida family courts consider several factors, with annual income being one of the most important.
