When you have children, your main concerns are making sure they are safe, happy, and healthy. A divorce can cause financial and emotional upheaval in even the most stable household. For a child, this upheaval can take a toll in many different ways, including emotionally, mentally, and physically.

As a parent, it can be very difficult to watch a child suffer through the divorce process. Many parents count on child support to keep their children’s standard of living intact as much as possible.

That is what child support is designed to do. At the Law Office of Jeffrey Thompson, we start by educating our clients about child support and how it is calculated. Whether you are just starting the divorce process, or you need to modify an existing support order, we are here to make sure the support you pay or receive is fair, reasonable, and put in place for the well-being of your children.

As your Melbourne child support lawyer, Jeffrey Thompson offers client-focused and goal-oriented services. Interested in how our child support lawyer can help you? Call us: 321-253-3771.

Experience Matters – and Can Make All the Difference

Child Support in Florida

In the state of Florida, child support is calculated using several factors, which include:

  • The number of children involved

  • The parents’ incomes

  • Any overdue child support

  • Health care costs

  • Child care costs

  • Time sharing (the time spent with each parent)

 

Every family is unique, and arriving at a figure isn’t always as straightforward as you might think. In some cases, it’s necessary to factor in the cost of private school tuition, special needs, and extraordinary health care expenses.

The Purpose of Child Support

Child support is designed to ensure that children of a divorce will be cared for and supported even after the divorce is final. For a child, stability and routine are key to thriving after divorce. According to one study, adequate resources, such as food, safe housing, and social support, are a cornerstone of a well-adjusted childhood.

Children don’t need an extravagant lifestyle to thrive, but they do need to have the staple items of everyday life, including food to eat, clothes to wear, and a comfortable place to live. This is what child support is supposed to provide. Our Melbourne child support lawyer can help you ensure your child's needs are met and that the parent paying child support is still able to support themselves.
