How is the amount of child support determined in Florida?
By statute. Child support is determined by statue, and it’s based on both incomes of the parents. There are some deductions, but that is something you need to either look up or maybe talk to an attorney about to figure out. Sometimes a parent is unemployed, and sometimes they are voluntarily unemployed or voluntarily underemployed. That is when imputation of income comes into place. Talk to an attorney to figure out if the parent or the other parent in your case is voluntarily underemployed or unemployed to see if you can include income to that parent. Another thing you can do is deviate from child support. Talk to an attorney to figure out if deviation is something that applies to your case.
