Child Support

Calculating an Accurate Agreement Based on Formula and Finances

Due to the complex regulations and guidelines that are involved, child support is an especially complex area of family law in Florida. At Elkins & Elkins, our Orlando child support attorneys take the time to walk you step by step through child support calculations and ensure that your child support accurately reflects your situation. Our experienced legal team — we have helped more than 10,000 clients through the Florida divorce process — provides you with honest and clear advice about your situation, and it gives you the tools you need to ensure support enforcement in an efficient and effective manner.

If you are already paying or receiving child support, and your financial situation has changed, we can help. Whether you have lost a job or are in financial distress for some other reason, we can help you modify child support.

Elements of Florida Child Support Guidelines

A child support calculator developed by the state of Florida determines what your child support obligations or payments will be. The formula this calculator uses considers many different factors, including:

  • Custodial schedule/number of overnights
  • Gross monthly income of each party
  • Cost of children's health insurance
  • Costs of day care

There are many other expenses that need to be taken into account to reach an appropriate child support figure. At our firm, a child support lawyer serving Orlando and other surrounding communities will help you understand all of the factors that need to be taken into account in your case.

The Elkins & Freedman law firm was effective, responsive, and knowledgeable to me during my dire family law situation. Before hiring Mr. Elkins, my ex-girlfriend/mother of my child was not letting me see my child. After hiring Mr. Elkins, I got my child at least half the time. I was most impressed with Mr. Elkins ability and willingness to directly level with my ex-girlfriend/mother of my child, whom initially was uncooperative and not represented. I sincerely felt that Mr. Elkins was my advocate and he got the job done. I highly recommend Mr. Elkins and the Elkins & Freedman law firm to anyone who needs legal representation.
