If I have custody following a same-sex divorce, will I receive child support?
It depends. Child support is based on Florida statute. There is a formula that we use to figure out child support, and the same formula is used by the court to determine what child support is going to be. Child support is something that a parent cannot waive. Therefore, once you plug in the numbers, what your income is, what the other parent’s income is, and apply those deductions such as daycare, and health insurance, and who makes those payments, then child support would be determined. At that point, you can figure out if you will receive child support or not. Discuss it with your attorney to figure it out.
