Calculating Florida Child Support

The state of Florida established Child Support Guidelines to reduce legal conflicts while ensuring that the needs of children are met. However, the formula does not cover every scenario and parents do not always agree on income numbers, exemptions and other factors necessary to calculate child support.

The Law Office of Beth Reineke in Tampa, Florida, provides mediation services to resolve child support disputes and other aspects of divorce and child custody. During mediation of your child support dispute, Attorney Reineke will help you gather financial data, help you analyze that information, and then she will accurately calculate child support for your children in accordance with Florida’s Child Support Guidelines.

Mediator for Modification of Child Support

We also mediate and resolve child support disputes relating to post-decree modification of child support orders. If you need to recalculate your child support, Attorney Reineke can help.

Tampa Child Support Mediator Beth Reineke

Beth Reineke is extensively familiar with the factors that go into calculating child support. She applies years of experience in the family courts of Florida to determine appropriate child support, taking into account such factors as:

  • Taxable and non-taxable income of both parents
  • Investment and rental income
  • Unreported income (cash-based business or self-employed)
  • Bonuses, commissions and overtime
  • Other sources of income
  • Time sharing (visitation) percentages, which may reduce or eliminate support
  • Special needs of the child
  • Job loss or other financial hardship

Mediation of Temporary Child Support

Even in an uncontested divorce or relatively amicable contested divorce, there may be disputes over child support at the temporary relief stage. The court will require parents to mediate before they can request a hearing to set temporary child support. Attorney Reineke provides mediation in advance of temporary relief hearings and prior to proceedings for permanent child support.

We also mediate and resolve child support disputes relating to post-decree modification of child support orders. If you need to recalculate your child support, Attorney Reineke can help.
