The Matter of Child Support
During a divorce, a person often goes from financially contributing to a family’s welfare with the help of their spouse to being the sole wage earner. This can naturally cause immense stress and uncertainty for the future. A spouse often needs the matter of child support to be tackled as soon as possible. At The Law Office of A. Sam Jubran, P.A., a Jacksonville Child Support Lawyer will have experienced several different scenarios and garnered varied outcomes in child support matters. Trust that this understanding can also help you in yours.
The Process of Deciding Support
The parent with the bulk of time with their child will usually receive child support. The amount of support is computed using the Child Support Guidelines Worksheet. This factors in the individual’s income, the percent of the time they have their children, insurance costs, daycare, and medical expenses. A statutory formula takes these factors and produces a monetary amount.
Other work that the court expects each spouse to produce is formal financial disclosure and a financial affidavit.
As a spouse’s percentage of time with their child increases, the less they will be required to pay in child support. Of course, there are exceptions.
You’ll need an experienced Jacksonville child support lawyer to guide you through this complicated process. Count on our office to be that expert.
