How does alimony affect the calculation of child support in Florida?
Alimony will be reduced by the amount that the payor spouse is making to the receiving spouse. Now once that is calculated into the child support calculations, the income for the payor spouse is going to go down. Now the income for the receiving spouse is going to go up. That means that the payor spouse is going to pay less in child support and the receiving spouse’s income is going to be increased, which means they’re going to be receiving less child support from the payor.
