If you are a single or divorced parent who is seeking
child support, or if you are already receiving child support, but you believe that the
amount is incorrect or the payments are not coming in a timely manner,
the family law attorneys of Owenby Law, P.A. can help. The Child Support
Enforcement Program of the Florida Department of Revenue has mechanisms
that are set up for single parents who are entitled to child support.
As is the case with most government programs, however, navigating your
way through the required steps can be intimidating and confusing for the
uninitiated. Our legal staff is familiar with the state of Florida's
requirements and can facilitate the process so that you can begin receiving
your child support in the full amount and on time. Contact us today to
discuss what our
family law firm is able to do for you.
Child Support Calculations and Enforcement in the State of Florida
The courts in venues like Duval, Clay, St. Johns, and Nassau counties use
a formula to determine the amount of child support that one parent has
to pay for another. There are, however, several variables that affect
the child support calculation, such as the monthly income of each parent,
the number of children involved, how many overnight visits the child is
spending with each parent, special needs, other child support obligations
that the paying party may have, et cetera. The family law attorneys at
our firm are familiar with the factors and formulas that go into determining
your monthly stipend.
Working with the state of Florida, we are able to provide the following services:
- Calculation of monthly child support payments
- Modification of existing payments when circumstances change
- Enforcement of existing child support payments with non-compliant parents
- Garnishment of wages so that the paying party is not able to withhold funds
Paternity testing when the father is denying legal and financial responsibility
If you are already receiving child support, but you are still struggling,
our lawyers can review your current situation and determine whether or
not you are entitled to additional compensation from the other parent.
