Jacksonville Child Support Lawyer

Advocating for Your Family & Your Rights

When a divorce involves minor children, the parents must take care to provide for each child's welfare under the terms of their separation. Child support is a primary means of ensuring that each parent contributes to the child's needs in the years following a divorce. The Jacksonville family lawyers at Hutchinson Law are committed to providing professional guidance as you work toward a favorable support arrangement.

We can help you settle the terms of your plan, ensuring that your children are provided for and your needs are met. Contact Hutchinson Law today!

Calculating Child Support in FL

Both the father and the mother have an obligation to their child in child support. Even in cases where both parents share custody, support may still be necessary to account for each parent's ability to contribute to their child's well-being. To ensure that support amounts are appropriate for a given situation, Florida law provides specific guidelines for calculating support.

The factors influencing a support plan include:

  • The total income of each parent
  • How many children will be supported
  • Custody arrangements
  • Healthcare requirements
  • Other basic needs, including education

While these guidelines specify the amount owed in a typical support plan, the actual amount ordered for your circumstances may vary. The Florida court has the authority to increase or decrease the support amount for reasons like unusual medical expenses, lofty educational fees, and the child's age. A divorce attorney in Jacksonville from our firm can help you develop an optimal support plan to ensure that your child's needs are met in any circumstances.

Experienced Counsel for Any Situation

When you retain the guidance of an experienced family litigator, you have an advantage in negotiating your support case. This is not only true during the initial divorce proceedings—it carries through to the changes needed in the months and years after a dissolution has taken place. If you have reached the point where you need to seek a modification of child support or press charges for contempt of court, our legal team can help you take action to protect your child's rights.

When you need help establishing a child support plan that takes your rights and your capability into consideration, look no further than Hutchinson Law. Our Jacksonville family lawyers have helped clients work through the complexities of divorce for a number of years. We provide families with dedicated counsel to help them make it through this difficult season of their life with minimal stress and maximum hope.
