Child Support: What You Need To Know
Child support in Florida is determined by state-mandated guidelines based on financial information provided by both parents. Assuming this information is accurate, the data can be entered into a formula to come up with an appropriate figure that the noncustodial parent will be obligated to pay. Many child support lawyers rely on this formula without searching for discrepancies or irregularities.
Unfortunately, some parents understate their salary or intentionally omit sources of income in an attempt to lower the amount they owe. At the Melbourne office of Shawn Reid, Attorney at Law, we go a step further to determine whether all potential income has been disclosed.
We Work Hard To Get An Honest Result
If you are the parent seeking child support, our firm will fully investigate the other parent’s financials and work to uncover any hidden income. If you are the parent who is required to pay child support, we will do everything we can to see that items such as custody, day care expenses and health care expenses are considered in the calculation.
Mr. Reid and his firm know that it is important to achieve a child support plan that is feasible and accurate. Simply accepting the figure produced by the formula without digging deeper could bring about a result that is harmful to children and parents alike.
