Child Support Issues in St. Petersburg
When a marriage ends, the children are often the most affected emotionally and physically. Obtaining a fair amount of support is essential in the child’s ongoing development and well-being. In the state of Florida, the remedy of child support is available whether or not the parents have a petition seeking the dissolution of their marriage.
Several factors are considered in determining how much child support must be provided and of utmost importance are the best interests of the child.
In arriving at a fixed amount of support, the court is guided by a table of values which are compared against the income of each parent. The court is allowed as well to set the amount within a range of plus/minus 5% of the guideline value after weighing the child’s:
- Standard of living
- Station in life
- The financial status of each parent
