The determination of child support is one of the most critical decisions made in a family law case. Naturally, emotions run high, but our lawyers are experienced in helping to attain the best results, based less on emotions and more on best interests of the children and the needs of the parties involved.
Our firm represents clients located in the Northeast Florida area, including Jacksonville, Orange Park, St. Augustine, Fernandina Beach or in the areas around Duval, St. Johns, Nassau, and Clay counties requiring assistance and advice in matters relating to child support.
As part of a divorce, dissolution of a domestic partnership, or a paternity action, a court determines the child support obligation of the non-custodial parent. Sometimes, the amount of child support that is ordered can be increased or decreased in the future in light of a change in circumstances. Our attorneys are experienced in handling both the original determination of child support and in seeking or contesting future modification of child support obligations.
In Florida, child support is determined according to statutory guidelines. It is imperative to have the counsel of an experienced attorney as "guideline" support amounts can vary according to various subtleties in your case. A proper determination of child support is vital to your child's well-being.
