Can clothing costs be considered as child support in Florida?
Clothing cost is actually factored into the child support guidelines. The formula itself takes into consideration what it would cost for an average child to have clothing. However, if there are some extra cost that is associated with your child such as school uniforms, that is something that you maybe can settle with the other parent if you can. That is something you can go back to court and ask the judge to deviate. The judge has a discretion to deviate from the child support guidelines up to 5% up and 5% down. However, go back to court or talk to an attorney to figure out if there is something you can do with your child support.
