Getting ready for child support payments

Apr 26, 2023 | Family Law

If you are in the middle of bringing your marriage to an end, you might have a myriad of legal stressors to work through. From the division of marital property to child custody, divorce can generate high levels of stress and uncertainty. In addition, if you have kids and expect to owe child support, it is extremely important to go over relevant issues carefully.

From understanding the various factors that courts use to calculate child support to familiarizing yourself with the penalties that could surface if you do not pay on time, it is vital to have a clear understanding of your obligations.

Factors that affect child support

The Florida Department of Revenue published information that sheds light on factors courts go over when awarding child support. For example, the court will look at a child’s needs, including health care costs and expenses related to child care. The court will also look at the income of each parent.

Furthermore, courts go over these factors when reviewing a child support order to determine if changing the amount of child support a parent owes has become necessary.

Staying current on child support

It is pivotal to stay caught up on child support. If you fall behind, you could face a number of penalties, such as the loss of your driver’s license, tax refund or passport. In addition, you could suffer serious damage to your reputation and experience overwhelming anxiety.

If you have questions about any aspect of child support, including the possibility of modifying your order due to major changes in your life (such as job loss), make sure you evaluate your circumstances and options thoroughly.
