Understanding Florida law regarding child support

When married couples choose to divorce in Florida, the parent who gains physical custody of the children may have need of financial support for the children's care. Child support laws are strictly enforced in the state. A parent seeking child support is advised to act with the guidance of an experienced family law attorney to make certain that a fair and accurate amount of financial support is obtained.

The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A., serves clients from throughout the state in all matters of child support, custody and visitation. Based on a clear understanding of state guidelines that govern the court's decisions regarding child support, our dedicated team will work to protect your rights and keep the best interests of your children at heart. We can also assist those seeking modifications of existing court orders.

A custodial parent often has many day-to-day financial needs to provide adequate care for children after divorce. Especially in situations in which that parent had previously been a stay-at-home parent and is now struggling to gain employment in order to become financially independent after divorce, it is often necessary to request that the other parent contribute financially to the children's needs. The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A., can guide you through the process of obtaining the full amount of child support to which you should be entitled.

All Florida parents are legally responsible for the financial support of their children who are under age 18. The amount of child support to which a parent is entitled varies according to individual circumstances and the court's review of guidelines, as they pertain to a particular situation. Anyone with questions or concerns about the process may contact The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A., for legal assistance.
