Does joint custody affect child support in florida?

Yes. Child Support calculations use several factors, which include the combined income of both parties (minus tax deductions), the number of children the parties have together, child care and health insurance costs, and the amount of overnights you spend with your child(ren).

The premise is that if you are spending at least 50 percent of the over nights with your child, then you are spending your funds to care, house, cloth, and feed you child.

What if you do not get 50 percent of the overnights?
If you have your child at least 20 percent of the overnights, then you will get a reduction in the amount of child support based on the amount of overnights you actually care, house, cloth, and feed you child.

If you would like more information on child support and how it would be determined based on your individual situation, call my office and set an appointment for a free consultation. 239-208-2203.
