Generally speaking, Florida child support laws are based on the “Income Share Mode” which is a means used to calculate the amount of child support due by one parent to another. This system takes the number of children in the household and the net income of each parent into account before determining the amount of monthly support. There are a number of factors Courts consider when setting child support including: Salary or wages of each spouse; Bonuses, and commissions; Business income from self-employment, partnership; workers’ compensation, social security, disability benefits; investment interest and dividends.

Florida Family Law Statutes also contain special provisions in the child support sections for children who spend a substantial amount of overnights with the non-residential parent. In addition, under the statute, Courts have the authority to increase or decrease child support if the child has extraordinary medical needs, if one of the parents' income varies with the season, or if the child accrues income independently. These laws can be complicated and should be discussed with an experienced Hernando County family lawyer.
