Naples Child Support Lawyers

Helping Clients With Child Support Matters in Florida

With more than 100 years of combined family law experience, our Naples child support attorneys at Long, Murphy & Shemkus, 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 parents
  • Parental time sharing
  • The number of children involved
  • Healthcare and insurance costs
  • Childcare expenses
  • School and educational costs
  • Additional extraordinary expenses

Enforcement of Child Support Payments in Florida

Florida enforces child support diligently to ensure parents fulfill their obligations. An owing parent may seek aid from Florida's Department of Revenue or a private child support law firm. An owing parent also has many different sanctions when enforcing a child support program.

While the statute will determine the child support amount, our knowledgeable Naples child support lawyers will consider any other relevant factors that have an impact. Keeping your child's best interests in mind at all times, our Naples child custody attorney 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.
