Florida Laws Regarding Child Support

All parents, once separated, are responsible for supporting their child or children. This is true for both mothers and fathers, for couples who are divorcing, and for couples who were never married. Support may take the form of physical custody, financial support, or a mixture of both.
Florida courts changed in 2010 the method by which they calculate child support levels. Prior child support laws required at least 40 percent of overnight stays before any reduction in the parent’s child support obligation was allowed. The current law now will allow for a reduction in child support for a parent who has at least 20 percent of overnight stays with the child. Additionally, specific consideration to parents’ income levels and other financial factors as well as the daycare, health insurance, and possible unique medical needs their children are taken into account in order to construct a child support order.


parallax background
  • Very Capable Trial Attorney

    Renier or "Ray" as he calls himself represented me for a DUI in Palm Beach County and at first I was not thrilled about the idea of going to trial. However, Ray made me feel comfortable and explained the pros and cons of having a trial. We had the trial and he got me a NOT GUILTY. I was very happy but glad that the process was finally over. He could have kept me a bit more informed regarding the discussions he had with the state attorney about my case. Overall though, I would definitely recommend him to someone.

  • Renier got me a great resolution to my case.

    I retained Mr. Ledezma for my DUI case about a month ago. It was my second DUI arrest in a few years. Renier did a great job and explained the process to me and did not make promises he could not keep. There was a chance I would not get another reckless so my expectations were kept at a reasonable level. However, he found some weaknesses in the case and ended up getting me a reckless instead of a DUI conviction. I was impressed with Mr. Ledezma because he was very straightforward and showed that he cared. I would definitely recommend him because he is sincere in his efforts and cares about his clients.

  • Very aggressive and cared about getting the nest result.

    I fell down at Walmart about a year ago and hurt my back. I received medical treatment and brought it to Walmart's attention. However, when Walmart received my letter and medical records they said they were not responsible. My friend retained Renier for his personal injury matter and recommended him. When I spoke to Renier he was very helpful and explained the process to me. He didn't make any promises besides he would work very hard to get me a good settlement. He filed a demand letter and negotiated with Walmart for over 6 months when he eventually got me a great settlement. He was great because I was able to call him for questions even on the weekends. I could tell he cared about making me happy and getting me a great result. I highly recommend him to anyone else in my position.

  • Great Attorney and cares about his clients.

    Mr. Ledezma assisted me with my battery case and fought hard for me. He did not recommend accepting the first offer and it turned out he was correct. I ended up getting a much better deal which minimized the costs associated with my plea agreement and long-term consequences. More importantly, Mr. Ledezma by his actions really showed he cared and made me feel like I was more then just another client. A great experience and I would highly recommend him for anyone.

  • An excellent, reliable, knowledgeable, considerate, hard working attorney. I would never, ever use another attorney.

    It is rare in this day and age to find an attorney that is dignified, caring and kept me up to date the entire time. He exceeded my expectations, which are quite high. Ray did not miss a beat in any part of the client/attorney relationship. If you need an attorney, this is the attorney you should choose. You will not be disappointed.
