Naples Child Support Attorneys

Understanding Child Support Guidelines

With more than 75 years of combined family law experience, our Naples child support attorneys at Long, Murphy & Zung, P.A. have assisted countless parents in establishing parental time sharing and child support. In Florida, a parenting plan encompasses all children's issues, including child support. While the details of the parenting plan help determine the child support amount, it is largely determined by a statutorily driven formula.

Some elements of Florida's child support formula include:

  • The income of both parties
  • Time sharing
  • The number of children
  • Medical and hospitalization insurance
  • Daycare expenses
  • Educational expenses
  • Other extraordinary expenses

Choose a Skilled South Florida Family Lawyer

While the statute will determine the child support amount, our knowledgeable Naples family lawyers will consider any other relevant factors that have an impact. Keeping your child's best interests in mind at all times, we will help ensure that the child support determination is also fair under the law.

Depending on the lifestyle your child or children currently enjoy, the court may approve a deviation from the standard child support guidelines in an amount of up to 5 percent. If warranted, and with substantial supporting evidence, a further deviation may be approved.
