How Is Child Support Determined?

Both parents are obligated to provide health care and financial support for their children, even if they are no longer married. Florida has specific rules for determining the amount of child support and how it is to be paid by each parent.

Factors that are considered include the following:

  • Income of each parent
  • How many children
  • How long the child (or children) stays with each parent
  • Childcare expenses
  • Medical expenses
  • Standard of living

How Long Does Child Support Last?

In Florida, child support typically lasts until he or she turns 18 or graduates from high school. In some cases, if there is an agreement between the parents, one parent may provide financial assistance while the child attends college. If a substantial change of circumstances occurs, a parent may seek to modify their child support.
