The ability to provide for your children after a divorce is an issue that weighs heavily during your divorce case. At Ferraro Law Group we have helped thousands of people get to the other side of divorce in a way that is workable and with plans in place that make sense. We take very seriously the comfort and well-being of your children, and work tirelessly to make sure their lives remain as normal as possible. Of key importance in this endeavor is making certain child support is awarded in an appropriate amount.
The child support guidelines in Florida take into account the following things:
● The financial ability of each parent to pay and/or financially provide for the children.
● The standard of living to which the children are accustomed.
● The age and needs of the children.
When an award of child support varies from the statutory guidelines, a clear reason for the deviation must be provided. It is also important to note the child support guidelines govern not only the initial award of support awarded, but also any request to modify an existing order. The attorneys at the Ferraro Law Group have experience in explaining how determinations of amounts of support are reached, and present your case to the Court in a way that is clear and easy to understand. We gather the information and evidence necessary to establish your children’s needs and show the Court how support should be awarded with the best interests of your children in mind.
