Florida regulations regarding child support

Divorce has a way of forcing families to undergo major changes in life. Often, a parent who has stayed home full time to raise children during marriage finds it difficult to make ends meet when a former spouse, who was the main breadwinner, is no longer living under the same roof. In such situations, it is not uncommon for a Florida parent to submit a request for child support.

The court typically awards support to a custodial parent. Such monies may be used to fulfill any basic need of children, including food, clothing, shelter, education and more. The amount of child support one must pay is determined on a case by case basis; although, there are certain factors usually taken into consideration before the court makes such decisions.

Attorneys at The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A., have a clear understanding of Florida law as it pertains to matters of child support and custody agreements. We are prepared to assist you by providing answers to your questions and offering suggestions as to how best to proceed to protect parental rights while keeping the best interests of children at the forefront. The first logical step is to request a consultation so that we can discuss your immediate and long-term legal goals.

In Florida, the court typically believes that children should spend as much time with both parents as possible after divorce. There have been some situations, however, where a parent was deemed unfit to retain any type of custody of a child. If you are facing legal challenges regarding child support, visitation or other child-related matters, you may call our office to schedule a meeting so that we can offer an assessment of your case.
