Florida Child Support Attorneys
Serving Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, Orlando, Stuart & Gainesville
Child support is paid by one parent to the other after a divorce, or if the two parents never married. It is a form of income to help protect the child. Usually, the non-custodial parent pays child support to the parent who has primary physical custody. The child must be adopted or be the genetic child of the parent in order for child support to be ordered.
Establishing which parent will have primary custodianship over the child or children is only half of the discussion. Child support also needs to be established. The Berman Law Group is here to help you navigate child support disputes.

Calculating Costs of Child Support
Even when parents separate, both are usually still obligated to contribute to their child’s upbringing. Often, this contribution is in a financial form. As children grow up, they incur costs like health insurance, education, and social activities. They also have daily needs including food, lodging, and clothing.
A key issue in the process of child custody and support is calculating these costs. Often, the distribution is not equal.
Child support payments depend on different factors such as:
- The best interests of the child
- The forecasted expenses of the child, e.g. health insurance, essential care need
- The amount of time the child stays with each parent
- The income and wealth of each parent
- The existing custody agreement
Child Support Enforcement
Having a trusted child support attorney in Florida is important in helping you enforce the conditions set out in your child support agreement. Whether you are the primary custodian concerned over a lack of financial support from the other parent, or you are concerned over the behavior of the primary custodian, we can help you make certain that the best interests of your child are being met.
In instances where you feel like the child support agreement is not being upheld by the other parent, you can ask the court to enforce the order. We can help you file for enforcement and sort out the legal processes involved.
Modification of Child Support Agreement
Child support agreements can change years after the divorce. Some parents find it necessary to change parts of the support orders due to a change in circumstances, like losing a source of income, or a change in the interests of the child, like the need for more health coverage. A change in visitation plans can also impact child support agreements.
When a modification needs to be made, our family law attorneys can help you meet the necessary legal conditions. One of these requirements includes providing proof that there has been a substantial change in your circumstances.
