Will the Florida court consider high living expenses, such as loan payments and income taxes, when determining my ability to pay child support?
Usually not, however, going back to court and educating the court on your expenses at that point is going to be advisable. Child support guidelines themselves do not take those personal expenses into consideration. However, the judge or the court have discretion to deviate from child support. That is something you should be considering and talking about with an attorney, especially if those expenses are something that the children are benefiting from.
