If I get joint custody/time-sharing, will I still have to pay child support in Florida?
It depends. If you are making substantially more than the other parent, then yes you will have to pay. Under further statute for the calculation of child support, what we look at is how much you’re making, how much the other parent is making. We look at the other factors such as who is paying for healthcare, who is paying for the daycare if daycare is something that the child is in. Once that is determined, then we can figure out exactly what child support is. But usually if you’re making substantially more than the other parent, yes you will end up paying child support.
