Gainesville, Florida Child Support Lawyer
Nick Hamm is a child support lawyer in Gainesville, Florida.
Child support is calculated in Florida based on the following:
Net Incomes of Parents
Amount of Overnights per Parent
Amount of Health Insurance paid for the minor child
Amount of uncovered medical expenses paid for the minor child
Amount of daycare paid for the minor child
Calculating child support in Florida takes all of those factors and combines them in a calculation to reach a child support figure. Many times, a child support calculation might have been done incorrectly because the parties were not aware what should be included.
Many times, child support will be calculated after a divorce or pursuant to a child custody determination. Also, if your parenting plan is modified, it probably means your child support should change as well.
Other times, child support is calculated at a hearing involving the Department of Revenue, Child Support Enforcement Agency. In Florida, the Department of Revenue is tasked with establishing and enforcing child support for children who receive state services such as food stamps or medicaid. If you are involved in this type of proceeding, it is important to understand your rights as it relates to child support.
