Child Support Devoted Solely to the Practice of Family Law

Pinellas County Child Support Attorneys

Resolving Disputes & Ensuring Fair Support Orders

In Florida, all parents are legally obligated to support their children. This means that all children have the legal right to financial support from both parents as they grow up. When parents have a child out of wedlock or when married parents get a divorce, child support may be ordered to ensure that both parents support their child financially. In the case of a child born to unmarried parents, paternity must first be established.

Whether you are seeking support payments or contesting your obligation to pay, you have rights – and we want to protect them. At George & French, Attorneys at Law, we frequently represent separating and unwed parents in child support disputes. Though our primary priority is protecting the well-being of any children involved, we remain committed to helping you achieve your goals.

How Is Child Support Determined?

Child support is meant to cover expenses related to raising a child, including food, shelter, clothing, education, healthcare, and more. In most cases, it is paid by the non-custodial parent to the parent with primary custody.

Child support payments are generally calculated by Florida’s child support guidelines, though these guidelines are not black and white.

Child support payments will depend on:

  • Each parent’s income
  • The amount of time the child spends with each parent
  • The child’s special needs, if any
  • The cost of living in each parent’s town/city
  • Daycare costs
  • The child’s medical and health expenses
  • Tax considerations

How Do You Modify Child Support?

If your financial circumstances have changed, you may be able to modify your existing support order. To do so, you will need to prove that your circumstances have changed substantially. Our child support lawyers in Pinellas County can help you build a case showing your need for a change to child support payments.

If you need legal representation for a child support dispute, call George & French, Attorneys at Law at (727) 877-1088 now.
