Child support is one of the most consequential decisions that can be made by the court in the case of a divorce or the dissolution of a marriage. Whether or not child support is ordered and in what amount will affect not only both parents, but more importantly, the child. At Chopin & Chopin, LP, the best interests and welfare of the child is our priority, and we can help guide you through the process of child support litigation as painlessly as possible.
Under Florida law, it is the responsibility of both parents to provide monetary support to their children. However, in the case of divorce when a child may spend more time with one parent, the other parent may be ordered to pay child support each month to assist in the financial needs of the child during that time. How much child support is determined on a variety of factors.
