Can the Florida courts include my new spouse’s income when setting child support?
When setting child support, what we look at or what the court is going to look at is your income and the other parent’s income. The new spouse’s income is not a factor that the court takes into consideration. They look into your net income, the other parent’s income, and certain deductions such childcare, and health insurance. Once those are taken into consideration, when we can figure out child support. The new spouse’s income is not taken into consideration under Florida law.
