Florida Child Support Calculator Demo
Here is a video showing how the Florida Child Support Calculator works. You may find it helpful to printout a Florida Child Support Guidelines Worksheet when watching the video. Please note that I had to make some slight modifications to the input sections of the Florida Child Support Calculator to obtain the automatic calculation feature so the printout will not be exactly identical to what you see in the Florida Child Support Calculator demo.
Florida Child Support Calculator and Guidelines
Everyone hears the term “child support guidelines“, but sometimes the Judge will order an amount less than or greater than the guideline amount.
It is also very important to understand that different time-sharing arrangements, Statutes and/or case law can influence the actual amount the Court will use in calculating child support. Child support is not always as cut and dry as simply inputting numbers into a calculator.
