Although Florida law provides a formula for the calculation of child support, reaching an agreement regarding child support is not always easy.

How Does Florida Determine Child Support?

In our state, the courts use a table of incomes to calculate child support. However, every family’s case is different. Several factors will affect your child support decision, including:

When you consult with an attorney at Harris, Hunt & Derr, P.A., they can give you an accurate idea of what to expect in your child support case based on your individual circumstances.

Get The Post-Decree Modification You Need

Life changes. You can petition the court to modify an existing child support arrangement if you have experienced a significant life change such as:

  • A promotion or salary increase
  • Loss of a job or demotion
  • Relocation
  • A change in the custody or visitation order

Post-decree modification is a complex process. If the court denies your petition, you must start all over again to seek a child support order modification. Our attorneys can give you a much stronger chance of succeeding the first time around.

Understanding Child Support Modification in Florida

Once a child support order has been established, circumstances may change that require a modification to the existing arrangement. Whether you are seeking an increase or decrease in child support payments, it's important to understand the process and requirements for modification in Florida.

Some common reasons for seeking a child support modification include:

  • Change in income for either parent
  • Change in the child's needs or expenses
  • Change in custody or visitation arrangements
  • Job loss or change in employment status

Our Tampa child support lawyers have extensive experience in handling modification cases and can provide the guidance and representation you need to navigate the legal process effectively. We will work with you to gather the necessary documentation and evidence to support your modification request and advocate for a fair outcome.
