Child Support Attorney in Clearwater

Child Support Is a Legal & Moral Obligation of Both Parents

In order for your children to have the best quality of life, they need to be financially supported by both of their parents. Child support in the state of Florida is not up for debate; it is the legal responsibility of each parent. Whether you are a married couple going through a divorce or a couple in some other type of relationship wishing to separate, the Florida courts will determine mathematically how much economic support your children require. For this reason, it is good to have an experienced family law attorney on your side to protect your rights and the rights of your children. Our Clearwater child support lawyer has been practicing law for 28 years and knows what it takes to reach a fair agreement that benefits you and your child.

Put our experience to work for you. Call Connie R. Stephens, P.A. at (727) 205-0770 for a competent child support representation.

Understanding Child Support in Florida

Once child support has been ordered, it is not optional. Support payments can be made by the parent or can be deducted directly from the parent’s paycheck. The parent who is ordered to pay child support must make the support payments or suffer penalties.

Factors used to determine child support in Clearwater for each parent include:

  • Net income
  • Gross income
  • Revenue from commissions, non-cash donations, and bonuses
  • Unreported income
  • Cost of day care and child care for children
  • Cost of health care for children
  • How much time each parent spends with children

Being unemployed is not an excuse for not paying your child support in the eyes of the Florida courts. Child support is issued for the well-being of the children, and they should not be penalized just because one parent is unwilling to work.
