The court may, at any time, require either parent to pay child support, or
in some cases both parents. Frankly, you and your child may be missing out on
valuable financial support by an absent father or mother. In almost all cases, child
support is terminated on the child’s 18th birthday. The court will issue a child
support amount, a schedule for when child support is to be paid, and the month, day,
and year when child support terminates or is reduced.
Child support is based upon monthly income. Child supported can be calculated using the calculator in Florida Statute 61.30. This amount is relatively standard and set by Florida Law, but allows for a small deviation upon order of the Court.
